Jump In Middle School Writing“My favorite parts of the manual are the 10 minute writing plunges. If you have a reluctant writer the writing plunges are a gentle and easy way to introduce your student to writing using a writing prompt. Writing for such a short amount of time helps your student not to feel overwhelmed at the prospect of writing.” Read more from My Blessings from Above
