10 “Writing is the ultimate learning tool for all students of all ages in all subjects.” Write Source 2000 “Giving people permission to think thoughts that come and to write them down and make sense of them in any way they wish.” Writing Down the Bones Natalie Goldberg “We should write because it is human nature to write. Writing claims our world. It makes it directly and specifically our own.” The Right to Write Julia Cameron

11 “Writing allows us to hold our life in our hands and making something of it. We grow a piece of writing not only by jotting notes and writing rough drafts but also by noticing, wondering, remembering,questioning, yearning.” The Art of Teaching Writing Lucy McCormick Calkins

12 “…as human beings we write to communicate, plan, petition, remember, announce, list, imagine…but above all, we write to hold our lives in our hands and to make something of them…Writing allows us to turn the chaos(of our live) into something beautiful, to frame selected moments to uncover and celebrate the organizing patterns of our existence.” The Art of Teaching Writing Lucy McCormick Calkins

13 “Writing is an act of faith: faith that what I have to say, how I see the world, are important. I listen. I see. I feel and I record. Keeping the words flowing is an act of faith.” Writing Toward Home Georgia Heard

14 Writing makes us better teachers. When students see how we struggle, organize, think, reread, revise, edit, and get ideas with and through our writing, they ares upported in their writing. Literacy at the Crossroads Regie Routman
