It's not a new thing, but I'd really like to have a real
writing center -- one with different types of paper,
different pencils and pens, etc. I'm being thwarted right
now by the lack of a table that fits in the area that I
have for a writing center. We aren't back yet, so perhaps
when other teachers come back and start shoving stuff out
of their doors, I may get someone's cast off.
My favorite book that changed the way I teach, just a
little bit, was the book Shouting Doesn't Grow Dendrites.
