Reflection: Safety Creating a Second Draft by Concentrating on Word Choice - Section 1: Active Engagement #1


When doing this activity, I thought about doing a funeral for said and then writing an obituary or creating a tombstone, but I knew that could bring up bad memories for my students of someone they know who has passed. I know that some of my students have experienced loss in their lives and I wanted to be sure I was sensitive with that. Therefore, I concentrated on the life a garden brings rather than the death of a word part.
