Today is the National Day On Writing. The iniatiative, sponsored by NCTE, celebrates the importance of writing in our lives and draws attention to the remarkable variety of writing we engage in. What better day to feature Pat’s recent book Zing! Seven Creativity Practices for Educators and Students. In addition to writing about creativity in the form of letters to teachers, Pat talks about her writing process and offers numerous writing prompts and explorations for educators.
Here’s a writing prompt from page 96 in Zing! (Corwin, 2010):
