SLT- I can use stream of consciousness writing to fill a page.

 Stream of Consciousness – 

  1. a person’s thoughts and conscious reactions to events, perceived as a continuous flow.
    • a literary style in which a character’s thoughts, feelings, and reactions are depicted in a continuous flow uninterrupted by objective description or conventional dialogue. 

Yesterday we talked about Journal Prompt Options.

Today, we’re going to talk about another Independent Writing Homework. You are being asked to write a page a day of independent writing. This means that there’s no prompt, or criteria. All I’m asking for is 1 written page per day.

Many of you are familiar with the practice of keeping a journal or a diary. This can be a space for this. I am only counting pages, and not reading them unless you want me to. Another practice from journaling is called, “Stream of Consciousness” writing. It literally means to write down any thoughts that come into your head on the page.

Thoughts that come into your head, put them on the page.

Model for 30 seconds- you can try too if you don’t like watching me type…
