Rosemont Ridge Middle 6th grade Language Arts Class Visit

UPDATE- 12-18-09 -Hi, two of Mr. Snook’s 6th grade Rosemont Ridge Middle School language Arts classes. Due to modern technology difficulties with the blogspot/google account where the website is, we are extending the deadline to Jan. 4, 2010.

As I noted, I so enjoyed visiting your classes today. At the end of this post is the easier spot to leave a bit of your writing.  The other location blog was difficult for students to work (though, thanks to those who were able to).  Here again is the writing prompt-

Tell me about the importance of writing and story  in 100 words or less. WritersWALLk0548815

Here are some things to think about, ideas of what to write about:

Tell me what writing does for society. Tell me why people write. Tell me why stories are important. Tell me what writing does for history. Tell me what would happen if we didn’t write.  Tell me how writing changes people, affects people. When you read a good piece of writing, what does it do for you. When you leave a movie theater or watch a good movie at home, how does it make you feel? What does it do for you.

NEW DEADLINE: Please leave your Writing Response by Jan. 4, 2010. 

The comment section is at the end of this blog post and be sure to leave your name (just first name and last initial).  I will read all of your comments and pick a winner, which  will be announced the first week back from winter break. The winner will receive a copy of my West Linn book,BOOK-COVER0738558508 Images of America: WEST LINN. 

Email me at  if you have any questions, or if you would like to e-mail your response to me that way. Consider this a lesson in modern techology.

Happy writing.

Writing from students  who have figured out how to leave comments on blogspot on my book blog can be found at 

(There is  a reason that I switched to this wordpress format, from blogspot. It is much more user friendly.)

Be Sociable, Share!

    Without writing, we are nothing. without writing, the spanish could not have defeated the Incas,Peter Pan would never fly, Harry Potter couldn’t defeat Voldemort, without writing, the world as we know it would cease to exist. Mankind would be a bleak and pale race, we would be a sad, feeble race for we could not learn from the past and the worst mistakes we’ve ever made would be made again. Without writing, real happiness, or being truly sad, are emotions that woulld cease to be felt. Without writing, we would not have power, and thrive in this existence.

    If our world didn’t have writing we would be still living in caves and fighting to survive. I belive that writing have been a corner stone to our evolution. Without it there would be no schools no books and no writen history. Getting an education would be imposslibe and if no one is educated there wouldn’t be doctors, scientists, and inventor that we need to be a sucessful race.

    Without writing the world would be nothing there would be no education, no books, no newspapers, no history, no vocabulary, no grammar and I haven’t even mentioned the half of it. I love writing and I think a world without writing would be a world without happiness because I don’t just love to write I love to read books and get away from the real world and go into an imaginary one and if writing didn’t exist I wouldn’t be able to do any of that.

    What a great idea! Original and creative! I think this just may be the best use of your blog so far. And what a good primer in preparing and inspiring you to teach the young singles at church! God sort of works things out for the best, doesn’t He?

    The original location I had students leave responses to the value of writing question was found at my blog – but students are having google account issues (that is why I switched to wordpress). So, I am switching the location to here. Link below for the few comments that were made and students can now leave comments here, if they have time during Christmas winter break! Sorry for the confusion and it is a learning experience about technology!

    I will check both locations for comments.
