Newfound Middle School in Bristol, NH

Submitted by Jen LaRochelle:

At the Newfound Middle School, we culminated a month long reading of Murray’s A Writer Teaches Writing by using the 4 – A’s protocol to share our thinking. It was amazing to hear from teachers across disciplines about new strategies they will be sharing with students. We also dispelled some myths about what students can do in terms of their own writing. Our gym teacher also shared writing he had done with students around what it would be like to be a specific piece of athletic equipment. Awesome!
