Bathed in Oral Language

At a recent training I appreciated the statement that we should be,  "Bathing our students in oral language."  In order for our students to write something great, they need to HEAR something great!  We must remember to give our students the tools to practice their craft.  This should involve reading high quality literature with students; modeling the writing process for them; and allowing time for oral processing through conversation.

And now,  Off to sharpen my pencils!
