  1. Speaking of OWI creations, I’ve avoided asking, “Is it smart or stupid?” “Is it rich or poor?” Those two questions always made me feel uncomfortable. But this year I’ve decisively gotten rid of them. It feels much better taking them out. Without them I still get enough info about the object to move into a story. Definitely. Those two questions just bring up too much baggage for students. Makes it all too heavy. Too many stereotypes come out. We have to face our own stereotypes too much, I feel, when I use those questions in an OWI.

    Wow Sean, that’s deep.
    In my young, well-heeled classroom the kids come up w/some very slapstick applications of rich/poor and smart/dumb (we say, ‘tonto’ – silly): The pickle who stole lots of money and was afraid of going to pickle jail – which is really a pickle jar; the not-so-smart Gummy Bear who was obsessed with having a private Youtube channel, and had the great good idea of extracting it from the computer by clobbering it with a hammer…
    But there are so many alternative character directions you could go in, although rich/poor & smart/dumb provide such concrete, cognate plot drivers/motive that they are appealing for simplicity’s sake! Family members, friends, hobbies, lifelong aspirations, pets, (least) favorite characters, ice cream flavors, could all become fodder for a story…
    We have to adapt to the kids in front of us…
