Disney & Write From the Beginning…and Beyond

Posted on by Misook Kimura

Some participants from my recent Write From the Beginning and Beyond Training of Trainers decided to go to Disneyland California Adventure after some intense training to relax.

While they were there, they kept sending me pictures of what they saw and were labeling each picture with a writing strategy, prompt, and/or stages of understanding from the Narrative and the Response to Literature portions of the training. Their brains were so saturated that they couldn’t help but see Write from the Beginning…and Beyond everywhere they went!

With their permission, I’m sharing the artistic eyes of Jan Dickson and Deborah Harris from Arcadia USD. Can you see their interpretation of Write from the Beginning…and Beyond in these pictures?

Have fun!

Very clever indeed. I can only imagine the connections their students will make once they teach them these same WFTBB components in the classroom. Congratulations, Misook, you are incredible professional developer.

Thanks James. I never would have thought what they saw triggered memories from what they learned!

The fact that the training participants could see examples of what they were learning in novel situations demonstrates a deep level of understanding. Speaks well of them and their trainer! Thanks for sharing this!
