I've been trying to get my students ready for the test writing prompt. I'm using Barry Lane's videos as writing exercises. These videos really focus on improving student's style and voice points. Everyday I show a video from his channel. Then I have the students complete the writing printable I created for the videos. I have used zamzar.com to convert the videos to wmv and save to my flash drive. (For those teachers without YouTube access at school.) Click HERE or the pictures for a free copy of the writing printables.
