Modeling Writing

Is your overhead projector gathering dust in your classroom? Even with SmartBoard technology, I still prefer modeling writing with an overhead projector (or document camera if you have one) for management purposes. It allows students to actually SEE how writing is written on paper ... margins, spacing, crossing letters, etc.

Consider placing the overhead on the floor and gathering students close to you. It's my favorite way to model a mini-lesson.
