Quickwrite – The 5-Second Rule

Today we discussed the 5-second rule (or so it is called).  After class discussion students engaged in a creative quickwrite as part of our Writer’s Workshop program.  Then we broke into Revision Groups that discussed how stories could be improved upon.  Watch the video and see what you think.
