Reflection: Perseverance People, Places, and Things: Ways of Brainstorming Ideas for Writing - Section 5: Share


Often times, when we are practicing brainstorming for the first time, students have difficulty think about a lot of ideas. I don't spend a lot of time for each strategy because I don't want to overwhelm students. However, I do try to encourage them to think of at least one person and a few ideas per person, place and thing to give them something to use as a resource later on when they are brainstorming for a different writing piece. Sometimes will want to write about more than one person, place, or thing. I tell them they can but also encourage them to write more than two or three events for one person, place, or thing.
