Which princess are you?

Cinderella without a prince is who I am. Cleaning, washing, cooking, serving, oh my. What will I do with all this work and such little time before the ball? Calgon please take me away! But wait, I have found a way to escape this way of life. I’ll leave the house, get a job that pays and maybe find a prince to marry me. Once I’m married, I’ll contract my sisters to be the maids in my palace.

More excellent ideas. Having different rubrics (generic/individualized) is great to have on hand. I'm definitely going to have this idea in mind. Ward's idea of giving students workshop time is also conducive to empowering students with their writing--I would have to work on that, though. Last but not least, creating a network of teachers to aid in the grading of writing pieces is a good idea, but I don't know how the teachers in my school would take this type of collaboration. I'll give it a try.

This book was very informative, and Ms. Ward put her techniques and strategies in a very sensible and workable way. I really enjoyed the book.
