“You MUST read this book!”

Good morning class!

To get you brainstorming about books that have affected you, start filling out the handout, “If I Were a Bookshelf.” I’ll be posting a couple a week in the classroom so you can inspire your peers to read your favorite books.

Because being an avid reader is so important to being a great writer, I encourage all of you to sign up for Good Reads so we can share our love of reading with one another and get inspired!  To sign up, click here.  Next, search for our group, “Creative Writing with Keskes” and request to join. I’ll approve you and then we can discuss our love of books online!

We are also going to create a contract for the class.  We will all be signing it tomorrow.

“You MUST read this book!”

Good morning class!

To get you brainstorming about books that have affected you, start filling out the handout, “If I Were a Bookshelf.” Don’t worry about getting overly detailed. It’s just meant to get you thinking.

Now that you’ve had some time to brainstorm, on a post-it note, write down the number one book you feel everyone simply MUST read. Write down the title, author, and one sentence explaining why. We’ll be posting these in the room to give others reading ideas.

We are also going to create a contract for the class.  We will all be signing it tomorrow.
