Writing Lesson of the Month Network

...sharing thoughtful, mentor text-inspired lessons your students will love!

November's "Writing Lesson of the Month" is posted!

I'm still having trouble moving the website to its new server.  My website now officially exists in two places (one, an old limited server, and the other, a new server that will be able to handle much more traffic and bandwidth).  Can I figure out how to move the traffic to the new server from the old.  Nope.

Click here to access this month's featured lesson! 

If in accessing this lesson, and you receive the "Service Unavailable" message, please try again in one minute; that message means too many teachers (or my students) are trying to access the lesson at the same time.  I apologize that the new server (which can handle more traffic) is being stubborn.  I wish I could take a week off from grading papers to rectify the problem once and for all, but we have a writer's workshop to deal with, and my website needs to receive attention only when I can spare it.  Thanks for understanding.

Here is this month's lesson--seriously, one of the most enjoyable lessons I have taught in years.  I hope your kids love writing for it as much as mine did.

If you have storyboards that turn out as nice as some of mine, please photograph and post them below in the big white reply box.

Just wanted to let you know my students really enjoyed this lesson! I did the lesson before Christmas and was really proud of their work.  I took pictures and finally got around to sharing.  Thank you for the idea and all the information you share. 

I taught it to my 8th graders first and then the 7th.  It just so happened that if fell on a day that I was being evaluated.  It went well.  :-).  Thanks again.

The new webserver is not letting me fix the problem.  I will have a solution today, even if it means posting this lesson on another server.  Sorry.

No luck accessing yet...Pray you'll get it up and running smoothly soon.  These tech glitches are bears!

I cannot access the page either.  Any other way to see it?
