Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Turn that frown upside down. - Section 3: Positive vs. Negative Writing Experiences


As I reviewed this lesson to teach it for the following school year, I thought that it might be a cool idea to play the video at the end of the lesson, instead of at the start. That way, we could talk about how framing is really important, and maybe, this will help kids make the connection about the power of positive framing. Could they make negative writing experiences become positive writing experiences?
