When surveyed about possible after-school clubs, our students came back with ideas like a book club or writing club. (Interesting that they ask for more school, don’t you think?) Writing club? I could do that.
Right now seven students and I sit in the computer lab, working on scripts for the now defunct “Script Frenzy” that the NaNoWriMo folks. Some have page goals and ideas flowing while others are making muse posters to grace the walls of the lab.
Fun it is to hang out with students in this role. I hope to start this up next year in the Fall so we can do NaNoWriMo together. I will work with writing for a few years but then the mom in me thinks MathCounts might be the next thing to work with students on once my daughter gets to Middle School. She (and hence, all my students) needs these things to compete in her future.
