Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Writing From an Object's Perspective - Section 3: Closure


This idea that was born out of the notion that my kids wouldn't want science to end too quickly was a huge hit. Although the writing wasn't formalized into rough drafts and perfected, it was wonderfully freeing and effortless, and they thought faster than the words could be written.  I did have two of the stories typed for the purpose of sharing with this lesson, but looking at the raw form, it shows the process taking place. This is pure and I love it.
