Harnessing the Mighty Power Clap
If you’ve noticed one thing around here at Writing with Design, it’s that our team is devoted to supporting teachers in teaching the writing process. We also feel strongly about building up our young writers in their sense of confidence. After all, once you’re using Writing with Design in your classroom, you’re going to see just how much these come together. Your students will be filled with a fearlessness for writing, but better still, your classroom will be filled with their writing… their unique voices expressing all the amazing things they have to say.
To get an idea of just what we mean, take a look at this photo our founder Amber took with a group of enthusiastic writers. Together, they would clap once, flex their muscles, and say, “Huh!” like a weightlifter lifting something heavy. After each strong sentence they wrote, the group harnessed the mighty Power Clap. Why? Because writing strengthens our brains!
If that’s not inspiring enough for you, later on, the teacher pulled our founder aside. The Power Clap had filled even the most reluctant writers with a spirit of courage. Every writer was involved in the process, writing eagerly, and flexing those writing muscles!
