Tip (and a plea from a parent) to teachers assigning reading logs... really dig prompts focused on text structure and author's craft over useless time limits and page counts, but please let kids know they can write tonight's reading reflection tomorrow. Reading is baked into bedtime routine (yes privilege and practice we must push for all). Some kids (mine)... rule followers. I don't want them doing reading logs before bed. I want them falling asleep mezmorized (50%/50% sucess rate.... Totally made up numbers like writing grades... And inflated to make me look like better parent). Let them reflect tomorrow.

@erik_palmer Well actually you can even look at the rhetorical problems with the word well, your post has so many good tips so changing up the lede a bit could be great advice.

@erik_palmer speaking well may not mean speaking white but for many being told to speak well is trigger for speaking white because, well ....history. Just say "talented speaker" or reframe stance Language has power, small steps can be giant leaps

@dogtrax we should do a curated set of for this https://www2.ncte.org/resources/journals/english-journal/call-for-manuscripts/ ... Have to look into the copyright of the poems though...see if you have to sign it away. Most poems are some Creative Commons license

I just published another on Writing Conferences as a tool for growth and assessment: https://archive.org/details/2toPonder/2toPonderSe03Ep09.m4a and it's not season 3. I just make up the numbers anyways (kind of like grading in a writing class)
