Dream a life : honors thesis [(HONRS 499)]
Recently, writing has become even more of an endeavor for teachers and students. With the rising amount of texting and instant messaging, the idea of writing has been lost. Instead of word choice, ideas, and brainstorming, writing has become a way of saying what is wanted to be said as quickly as possible, at the expense of good English language. In order to exemplify how writing is taught in elementary schools classrooms, I have followed the same writing process I require of students by brainstorming my ideas. Instead of finishing a complete story, I have focused on word choice, detail, and most importantly, character development.
