I'm preparing to launch an "I-search" writing sequence with my 4th grader writers here in Juneau, Alaska, and wondering if any of you out there have some good student samples (from any grade level) that you'd be willing to share. I'm trying to stay close to Macrorie's insistence that we start with genuine "itch to scratch" questions, and plan to really emphasize talking to experts over searching the web, but we'll see how it goes.
I've misplaced my hard copy paper files of examples from over the years, so would be really grateful if some of you were willing to share such resources here. I'll aim to post a few as our work takes shape, too.
Best wishes on a clear and cold January Sunday.
