GO HAWKS! Writing for an authentic purpose. Advertisements Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related 4 Comments Pingback: Getting Schooled | First Week Back I love seeing writing for an authentic purpose in action and using morning meeting to make this happen! Were you thinking about strategies in Routman as this was happening? I was thinking about Routman! Specifically what she says about showing students that writing happens for a myriad of reasons and purposes…and not mention, something that excites the large majority of them (for no other reason than they are 6 and their parents love football :D). This post made me smile! I love that students are seeing how they can utilize writing in many different ways and for many different reasons in their lives inside and outside school. This is half of the battle with students. Did you guys send this off to the Seahawks? I hope so because I have a feeling it would give them a boost this weekend!
