Whew! What a great Writing Workshop we had on Periscope! Given that one phone represented multiple people and we had 673 phones and computers tuned in, we easily had over 1000 kids and parents participating. A great time was had by all!
I focused on the cranky process of revision. I introduced two revision styles:
- Wacky Revision Tactics
- Serious Revision Tactics
Kids clipped and glued and revised on the spot and then had lots of inspiration for new strategies to try once the workshop ended. The flood of positive feedback following the workshop is still coming!
We’re looking forward to holding other free writing workshops via Periscope. For now, you can watch the replay (below) and get just as much benefit!
Check out some of the photos and comments from the workshop:
The girls are excited to be a part of Julie’s revision scope!! ~Jennifer

What my kitchen table now looks like.
Thanks Julie Sweeney. My son took that boring little list he wrote, and is now imagining George Washington playing Minecraft in his underwear, but that was just his dream before he woke up. My daughter is telling a story about walking her cat to a sweet shop. And my 8 year old is imagining his dog cooking him breakfast. I’d say they had fun. I’m going to have to watch replay and take notes.
Julie, I watched your workshop with my homeschooling girls and we all enjoyed it. They each had two pieces of writing that they worked on one as the wacky Scramble for the free write and then took Thanksgiving papers and one chose the Lie option (6th grader) and the other chose to add dialog and add a couple of elements they had left out (8th grader).
Thanks for doing these periscopes and this workshop! I don’t have a phone to follow you on so we can’t comment but we do enjoy watching the scopes in real time (or on Katch when we miss) and feel a part of things.
My daughter, Ivy, was verbally responding to you a ton and wished she could type in comments or give you hearts. She also liked reading some of the other responses. My journal is filling up with notes from your talks!
