Aimee Buckner's
Notebook Know How
Strategies for the Writer's Notebook Why Writer's Notebooks? Notebooks create a place
for students to save their words in the form of a memory, a reflection, a list, a rambling of thoughts, a sketch or even a scrap of print taped on a page. Notebooks provide a place for students to practice writing. It's a place for students to generate text, find ideas, and practice what they know about spelling and grammar. A book talk created by:
Brittany Arbo Notebooks help students develop writing fluency What to Consider Before
Launching the Notebook... Is it easily portable to take home and bring back to school? Does it provide a standard size page? Is it a size that will be easy for you to collect and read? Do you have a plan for where students will put class notes or handouts? Will the students be able to personalize the notebooks? Students should have the ability to make this notebook their own! Strategies for Launching
the Notebook History of a Name... Names are special. The naming of something or someone
is significant for writers.
Understanding the history of a name
leads to the deeper understanding of that topic. Launching the Strategy:
Students put their name or a family name
at the top of the notebook and write about it--
how they got their name, what they like about their name, what they don't like about their name or nickname. What is the history of your name? Writing from a List Launching the Strategy:
Students make a quick list
based on a self-selected topic. Topics might include
things they are experts on,
best events in their lives,
worst events,
favorite words. They star or highlight
things on their list they could write more about.
Students then write an entry on those ideas. Other Strategies That Expand Topics...
Students think of questions or situations they have always wondered about
Provide 15-20 minutes at the beginning of each day just to write to what comes to mind. Daily Pages Questioning Write from Another Point of View Notebooks are a great place to try out
different "grabber leads"! With the help of mentor texts, students can create a "grabber leads" anchor chart in their notebooks! The best way to become a better writer is to write a lot! The writer's notebook
provides a place for students to create writing, revise, and edit with lots of flexibility. What about drafting? To develop longer pieces,
students may want to leave
their notebooks and move
to a single sheet of paper
to draft longer pieces of writing. The notebook can be
used to try out different revision strategies. This is what Aimee B. has to say about the writer's notebook... Sources: Buckner, A. (2005). Notebook know how: Strategies for the writer's notebook. Portland, ME: Stenhouse. Photo Credit: juicedonwriting.com Youtube: Aimee Buckner, Inside Notebooks
