The Writer's Notebook is designed as an ongoing assignment aimed at helping your students become better writers. You have complete control of what your students will write and the skills they will practice, simply pick the writing prompts that pertain to those skills. This assignment also integrates easily into any unit, lesson, or learning objective. You make it what you need it to be based on your class; it serves as a great template for supplemental activities. At the end of the Writer's Notebook, you will also have a collective snapshot of your students' writing so you can assess growth and progress.
