So I just want to clarify, the students only have one journal entry for the week? The journal entry is based on a prompt only if you need to focus on a specific skill but other than that students choose their topics? I don't understand the bell ringers, is this an actual test question or is it a timed writing assignment?
I really want to implement this and maybe even with spelling because kids pass spelling test but have horrible spelling in writing.
