Do you want to give your students a different way to meet the Common Core Anchor Standard 10 for Writing? Well here it is. "Conversation Journals" help students write more. You give them a prompt. They write. You respond. They write. You respond. Etc. Instead of you, switch it up and have two students write together. This is an alternate way to have a "Turn and Talk" conversation on a topic. Make your pencil do the talking!
