February 24th

We are almost done, Gang!  Tuesday is our last day.  If you didn't read your essay aloud, plan to do that and to encourage your tutee to do the same.  We will collect their typed copies for inclusion in the book.  Your journals need to be completed (outside and inside) for class.  In this blog, what have you gained from this experience as a tutor?  As a student?

February 22

Today, you worked on roughdrafts again and created your collage on your journals.  What was most effective in your conversation about your tutee's roughdraft?  What kind of response did you receive?  What should you have done differently? Respond in at least 10-12 sentences.

Again, I heard great discussions today.  Share your experiences with your tutee.  Then, I would like you to describe your tutee without using his/her name.  What do you know about him/her.  Finally, what are you learning about yourself as a writer in the early stages of this project?  (10-12 sentences minimum)

Day 2

Today as I was "creeping" around groups, I heard fantastic dialogue about the writing process.  Discuss your experience of the day.  What approaches did you take?  Is there anything that you would have done differently?  What was your closing assignment for your student?

Day 1 - The Adventure Begins

We just completed our first day at Lincoln Academy.  What was your reaction to our first day?  What do you anticipate doing next with your tutee?

Writing Process

Share the process you find most successful in writing.  Also, discuss any significant writing experiences you have encountered.

For the last few days, I have been tossing next Tuesday around in my head, knowing that I should make plans yet knowing that flexibility is most important.  I anticipate that we are going to have a great experience; in fact, we already have!  The enthusiasm of the OSU Writing tutors and my students is a hoot and will serve us well throughout this project.  For those asking about the weather, we will play that by ear.  I am working on the youtube clips this evening and hope to have the fun from Tuesday and Thursday done and  ready for you by Sunday at the latest.  Cheerio!

Welcome to this project blog

Welcome to the Lincoln Academy Project blog.  This blog will be open to NOC and OSU tutors.  I believe that this will be an amazing experience, and I am thrilled to be a part of it.  Use this space to post your experiences throughout the week and to post questions that you might have for our OSU tutors!
