We actually discussed seed ideas a couple of weeks ago while we were exploring authors’ websites. Roald Dahl’s site has some nice features and the one we liked best was his taped interview from 1988. He mentioned seed ideas and talked about his habits as a writer–it was really cool. But my students were like “huh?” when it came to the seed idea (ELL newcomers, as you know). So we had an introductory mini-lesson on seed ideas and the reason for the name, etc. Hence the sign above!
Well, hope some of you can use it in your room and that your week is off to a nice start!!
