Writing Ideas

October 2010

A School Setting
Imagine a school that works - really, really works. Teachers, students, administrators, and office staff are deeply involved.  Learning is what matters most. You are an outsider studying this school. Everywhere you look you find evidence of success.
What do you find……

  • in the literature classroom?
  • in the science lab?
  • in the art room?
  • in the front hall before school?
  • in the lunchroom?
  • at sporting events?
  • in the Principals office?
  • in the parking lot?
  • at after school activities?
  • in the school newspaper?

Answer these questions and then shape your answers into a glowing letter to someone who does not believe schools can be so successful. Share these.
