"I have just had a look through 1000 Quick Writing Ideas and it is really good!! I teach Auslan (Australian Sign Language) and your 1,000 Quick Writing Ideas are excellent ideas for the students to pick and practice signing for homework to share the next class. It saves me headaches trying to think of a topic for them to talk about!! Also, the information in there is very basic and easy to understand – it is very helpful for deaf students learning English and writing."
- Susan Ashley, (Methodist Language College, Victoria Australia)
"Thanks for an excellent product. I used your 1000 Writing Ideas last year for my grade 8 language arts class and it was just great! I hope you continue with this line of work as it is so well done and it has saved me so much time!"
- Kevin Dodsworth, (Westview Public School, Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada)
"Re: 1000 Quick Writing Ideas: I photocopied each page 5 times on to card stock. I will laminate the cards eventually. At the beginning of each writing workshop I hand out cards randomly to the students. I give them 2 minutes from the time I finish to choose a prompt and begin writing, then collect the cards. I choose one too and write as well. Depending on my grade level, I time them 5-15 minutes. Then they are invited it share any part of their writing they wish. We discuss what we liked and a way to make it better. Sometimes I tell them to write for their eyes only and no expectation to share is given. My students are writing with an eye to polishing 5 different pieces for the end of May, out of all of their current works. The kids have written some wonderful 'stuff' sparked by the prompts. I can hardly wait to see their final, polished pieces!"
- Darlene Turnbull, (Ecole la Prairie, Red Deer, Alberta, Canada)
"I'm very impressed with the 1000 Quick Writing Ideas book. I like the ideas for writing lists and am ready to try them out on my class next year. The misspelled list of students’ words will come in very handy. I can also use this list for their spelling words. With my being a special education teacher for grades K-12 this will be of great benefit for me and my many different levels of students. Thank you for making life and class work easier on me.” “P.S. Use this comment if you want as a testimonial. I am very impressed with your products!"
