Learn the trick to a great writing assignment! Lots of kids wilt like a daisy on a hot summer day when they are told WHAT to write. In Brave Writer's work over the last 20 years, we've discovered what leads kids to WANT to write. In this webinar, see examples of formats/containers appropriate to different stages of writing growth (Julie shares projects her kids did at [35:44] and [48:54]).
