Love these choices Amy! And I love that you stopped to consider what the true purpose. That allowed you to remove barriers to the students! I would love to hear more from you as your students become more accustomed to having multiple ways to express themselves. You may want to consider asking them “what other way can you think to practice writing?” You might be surprised that they come up with another option. Thanks for meeting them where they are!
