Lend a Hand – Senior Writing Project
January 5, 2009
Session 4 – Week 1
Attending: Jim, Ruth, Betty, Vivian & Sherri
News and Sharing:
We did free writing/journal writing for 10 minutes. Everyone shared.
We all caught up from the holidays, and Jim shared an hilarious story about his Christmas in 1947.
Next, Ruth read her next chapter in her “Visit to Aunt Sadie’s” story: all about baking an apple pie.
We read Senior Writers’ answers to their StoryCorps questions. The questions this week were about growing up and school. Everyone shared and Sherri took the originals to type up. Jim noticed that everyone chose different questions this time!
We ran out of time for the writing exercise, but since we were not going to do any questions this week for homework, Sherri introduced the activity and assigned it as homework. Everyone seemed relieved as they wanted to take time to think about it before they wrote it.
