So what is it? I'll tell you. . .
So, what are golden lines? They are the best and most creative sentence (or two or three) in a student's writing. The sentences that have detail. The sentences that use something you've taught them. Maybe it's the adjectives, or the compound sentences, or the commas in the series, or the sentence that uses voice.
Whatever it is, it sticks out. And sometimes, it's just that sentence that your struggling student is SOOO proud of!
This board has become my favorite board over the years. It highlights my students' writing and I love it!
Look at this line! I had to do the writing here, but this was not my idea. This was a student's idea. His Golden Line.
So, what's yours?
