I am an Education Specialist for the Tehama County Department of Education. I have been working for TCDE for 6 years. My first 5 years I worked as a Juvenile Hall Instructor in Tehama County Juvenile Detention Facility Court School. This last year I taught special education at 5 different school sites.

How can I engage my students in writing during the short time that I have them? As I prepare this presentation I wonder: How can I help the teaching I do carry over into the classroom?

“I’m From the Woods….” by Nick I’m from the woods and the creek behind my fence From the gray wooden backyard deck. I’m from the honeysuckles, The pear trees by the neighbor’s garden From the creek when I swing over it. I’m from the yellow walls of Grandma’s kitchen From the Yorkshire pup, the coolest thing in my family. I’m from macaroni pictures of the Ark From “I just can’t snap my fingers and make it happen” and from David the Gnome in summers long ago. I’m from my mom’s side of the family, From roasting turkeys for each holiday, From when Papaw yelled at his boss and got fired From the family pictures in the big wooden cabinet and From the family gathering when we drag them out. I am from those moments. A root that no one sees, but walks all over An important part of the tree.” Where I’m From…. by Lauren I ‘m from baths in the kitchen sink, From Downy and Mom’s perfume I am from flowers by the fence (yellow and springy they tasted like crayons). I am from the ivy crawling up the house, The baby tree whose sturdy trunk shot from the ground A mirror image of my planted feet. I’m from sprinkles and plastic table donut shops From Bert and Ernie I’m from stupid heads and dot dot I got my cootie shot From don’t touch this and don’t touch that. I’m from Hymn No. 96 and why is this piece of bread so small? And bible crafts made from neon pipe cleaners. I’m from Bill and Darlene’s branch From hot soup and freshly baked corn bread From the Well, when I was little’s and the snowy games Told to me by Green Bay Packer season ticket holders In the storage room are boxes Overflowing with shiny, color-coated memories Bundles of dreams kept alive To ask my mother about. I am from those moments A leaf changing color with the weather Time only strengthens the branch that holds me.

Use video or audio record for students to get their story out of their head Let students use a word processor Let students dictate their work to a teaching assistant or class mate who will write it down Let students use adaptive devices: pencil grips or special pen or pencil holders, raised or color-coded lines Let students use a thesaurus to find words to write or say
Let students use special word processing software that anticipates what students are trying to write. Let students use a spelling dictionary or electronic spelling aid Grade content and mechanics separately in written assignments. Give students a chance to correct spelling and grammar errors
