Daily Ten Pencil Joggers
Years of teaching and coaching cross-country have taught me that writers and runners share a common challenge... it's often hard to get started. Our Pencil Joggers
address this problem with just the right amount of help, an important step in creating "quality time on task" in the writing classroom.
to ignite the writing process
Meaningful prompts fuel the consistent exercise needed for the growth and development of young writers. We add purpose to the process, by offering a simple and secure venue
for the sharing of students' work online. This invitation to "publish" creates confidence and a desire to produce good work.
for daily writing practice
Personal improvement (output) is usually a direct function of quality time on task (input). Consistent and meaningful writing practice helps balance both sides of this equation, resulting in positive achievement gains in all areas.
Establishing a program that helps a student love writing, while producing quality content is not easy. A "daily writing prompt" has been the first step toward making it happen in my classroom.
A Publishing Platform
to make the process more meaningful
These prompts are free and open for use by young authors all around the world. This website may be used as a virtual filing cabinet, full of great ideas, or as a publishing platform from which students can share their best work with others.
I hope that everyone involved with your educational community will become familiar with, and feel comfortable using, this online resource.
