Last week I was in Sinton, TX

2/25/08 — Last week I was in Sinton, Texas (a small town in the southeast part of the state) where one of the librarians, Sally Hart, showed me a version of a writer’s notebook she’d come up with. It’s like the one I carry around in my pocket, except more creative. She calls it an “iMod” (see pic below), which stand for Idea Moments Observed Daily. She is in the process of making 300 of these to pass out to each and every kid at Smith Junior High so they can jot down story ideas to use in their writing. Very cool. And yet another example of the hardworking, dedicated educators so plentiful in our schools.
