Writers Conference 2

Myers has a writer's conference during writer's workshop.

This conference is especially important because the student I was conferring with needed to reminded of what a narrative story should have. During the conference, I decided to take sticky notes and write down the attributes of what a narrative story should have. Sticky notes are helpful in situations like these, because you can leave it with the student as a good reminder for them. Another thing you may have heard in this video clip is the music playing in the background. While my students write, I always have classical music playing lightly in the background. I find that this helps them focus better during writing time.
