With National Novel Writing Month coming up in November, however, I thought I would share that one of my dreams would be to engage the students in a novel writing project. I can see the students leaning back in their chairs now, giving me a wary look. I can hear their thoughts as they wonder what Mrs. Edick has in store for them now. In this learning community, however, we overcome challenges. I have the following ideas that result in a vision of students gathered in groups debating one another while they create something new they will own forever.
