Imagery is one of my personal favorite things about reading and writing. This pin is a great way to incorporate imagery which Duffy states is, "using prior knowledge about [descriptive] words and about our senses to create an image in the mind" (Duffy, p.117). "The relationship between reading and writing is particularity clear when teaching imaging...the more students practice composing text that helps readers create images, the better they will be at creating images as readers" (p. 121).

This self monitoring chart is a powerful tool. . I think these forms are great to get students to really think about their behavior rather than just be told how it is by the teacher. This helps them to understand, and helps the teacher understand their students more.
