What to Bring

Sample lesson plans
Sample writing from Temple Classes
You may bring a laptop to do the writing practice activities; however, a printer may not be available. If you use a computer, you will need to save each draft.  You can then copy/paste as you revise and rewrite.  It is valuable to save each version of the writing exercise so you can recognize the changes and development of your writing.
