  1. I LOVE this!!! I wish I were there, too!!! Michigan really does have such tremendous educators. I had to go back and re-read these snippets at least three times to take it all in. The one about “it’s real writing, not just blogging” is such an important message for us all. I find that kids are starting to throw around “slice of life writing” too flippantly these days. I see the same thing happening with blogging vs writing. Hmmm. Thanks for making me think this morning! Have fun at the conference!!!
