What is it? This teacher-developed interactive workbook series for students prompts them to express themselves and discover their world in only six words.
How does it work? Building upon the six-word concept spawned from Earnest Hemingway’s famous “novel” about baby shoes, the publishers developed interactive workbooks that educators can use to help improve student writing skills, encourage creativity and inspire storytelling.
How hard is it to use? Not very. These work just like traditional workbooks, so there’s virtually no learning curve.
How well does it work? Extremely well. The workbooks are aligned with the Common Core Standards and guide students through the writing process as they create their own memoirs.
How do I use it in the classroom? These workbooks are the perfect tool for engaging reluctant writers.
