Writing Down the Days: 365 Creative Journaling Ideas for Young People.
Dahlstrom, Lorraine M.; Espeland, Pamela, Ed.
This book offers an entire year of journaling ideas--some serious, some "silly," but all tied to the calendar year. In fact, the book's sections are the months of the year. Each idea in the book comes with a fact-filled introduction and aims to prove that writing does not have to be boring or dull. As a special feature, many entries in the book include addresses that lead the way to more information--about hobbies, hot dogs, popcorn, and the Peace Corps, to name just a few. To aid the teacher, there are also tips on grading student assignments, ways to "go beyond" the book, a special note for parents, extra encouragement for young writers, and a resource section. (NKA)
