The Little Things

Amy Cavender a writer for ProfHacker had an article in the Chronicle today called Sometimes it’s the little things.  As we learned about engaging our students and paying attention to what they are thinking, doing, and learning, she had an opportunity to talk with a writer. He was trying to come up with natural sounding prose. Talking to our students you never know what you might say that would solve their problem. With Amy it was the suggestion to dictate the story instead of trying to come up with the perfect sentence. Having a conversation with our students could lead to the same kind of “light-bulb” moment.
