A Thank You…
A few months or so ago we were able to have Liesl Shurtliff visit our school.
She’s the author of RUMP…a 2013 nerdy nominee.
It was an awesome visit.
After she left, I had my group of students write what they thought about the visit on a graffiti wall, a take away from my friend Donalyn Miller’s idea of a student response graffiti wall. The great thing about this strategy is that you can use it for practically anything (which is why I think it’s so great)!
This was to be a reflection of sorts.
Here is what they had to say.
As you can see, they could remember specific events of the visit. Especially the hook, the way she grabbed their attention and didn’t let go…
Standing on her head. : )
