Just Pinned to Technology: Just Keep Writing, Just Keep Writing regardless of it’s just pictures or in a language we may not speak. Students should write to practice. Students should write to become better writers. They all have to start somewhere. It is also important that students read.
My mantra for the next few weeks!
