As March 1st gets nearer, I'm growing slightly concerned about being able to come up with an idea for a slice everyday. When I was reading Michelle’s post about Choice Literacy, I went back to check out the site a bit before I went to bed. The first time I learned about Choice Literacy was after attending a literacy coach training a few years ago in Columbus Ohio, led by Jennifer Allen. She had us write about our life in 7 stories. She also said we could think about our lives as a book with 7 chapters. After listed the titles of our 7 chapters or our 7 stories, we had to pick one and just write. I’ve done this activity more than once and each time I've had different chapter titles. I thought I would begin again today and list 7 stories and use them as fuel for the coming month.
