Writing for You and Me! A Multi-Genre Project

Dear Reader,

      This multi-genre project is based on the needs of diverse learners who learn to write in various genres. Learners learn to write well so their audience will understand the purpose and point of view of the author. We will be devoting the genre project to literacy and informational works which can be used to describe the authors feelings, emotions and experiences or the information researched and learned compiled into seven different pieces of writing. Technology is the vehicle which binds the projects together.

       The informational works are structured around the resources describing the process of writing, the writers workshop for the classroom, and the researched writing called 6 Traits Writing Guide and Rubric.  Additional works describe informal and formative assessments to benefit the assessing and guiding teachers to building learning around observation and questioning to discover the understanding of the writer, reading and learner in all students.  One work will describe writing with English Language Learners.

     Personal, narrative, descriptive and poetry writings are sprinkled in between to provide entertainment for breaks, but also, descriptive of writing, writers and their use of the vocabulary riches in phrasing.  The pages linked in the right menu will allow navigation to the multi-genre project provided from the research and readings of referenced treasures provided by Dr. Juan Araujo from Texas A&M University, Commerce.  Thank you Dr. Araujo!

"From time to time, from the endless flow of our mental imagery, there emerges unexpectedly something that, vague though it may be, seems to carry the promise of a form, a meaning, and, more important, an irresistible poetic charge." Leo Lionni.

The Love of God is Great

We can not imagine the Father's love for us.  Let us praise him to the end of our day. Our God is wonderful, merciful and all loving. "The Love of God is greater far than tongue or pen could tell!"
Psalm 116:2
