Jackets are good. Not only can you shove stuff in the pockets, but they come in handy when that classroom whose thermostat has been broken since 1994 has a temperature of 54.

Lisa Hirsch

I love your class outline! It will be awesome!

Jane Dark

Good luck!

The only thing that I always keep in mind when dressing is that I don't want to wear light colored clothes on the first day; they show sweat-marks too easily.

(Or so I was warned by a more experienced TA just before I started teaching.)

JM

have fun!

Jo

It's going to totally RAWK

Wait...you're not a mall lady?!

Have you had to help Moomin write any reports yet? Can you tell me exactly how to teach children how to write reports?

badgerbag

No, Moomin hasn't written anything like that! And I haven't taught him. I think you could just point your kids to this and they'll ramp right up to speed in no time at all!

Just kidding...

I'm unsure of how to teach to anyone younger than about 10. But I'd probably suggest several different ways of what they are calling "pre-writing"... (a term i hate, it seems so clumsy! if you're writing words on the paper you're writing!) And then ways to coalesce an outline out of that brainstorm, list, mindmap, or giant stream of consciousness spew.

As a completely different tactic you could try teaching them to write a linear narrative of how they learned. Like, "I started out wondering how aluminum foil was made. Then I looked in the encyclopedia and learned that first aluminum ore had to be mined... and then I realized it was all more complicated even than that... And etc." So it's their own history of how they learned the details of a subject -- and they get to lose the anxiety people get when they have to write in a formal, impersonal style.
