Stories of Tomorrow: How to Open Doors to Imagination in the Classroom

One constant source of inspiration? The classrooms that tackle NaNoWriMo through our Young Writers Program. YWP educator Alexis Lyon talks about incorporating YWP into her class curriculum. I first saw NaNoWriMo’s Young Writers Program from a student teacher at Lincoln Middle School. My mentor also had the YWP progress chart hanging in the classroom for students who were participating in it outside of the classroom. The program was such a success for my 6th grade class. I think the hardest part of running the Young Writers Program is incorporating it into my curriculum plan for the year, though. Other obstacles I ran into were related to technology. I asked a student (Matthew Davis, now grade 7) if he thought there were obstacles. At the beginning of 6th grade I had a student that could piece together about 3/4 of a page of writing in a couple weeks.
