Carry A Scrapbook!
One very useful and simple way to brainstorm without picking up a single writing device is the scrap book. That's right! Often times we go about our business, and suddenly.....magic! Encourage the use of scrapbooks. They are super simple, but yet really help generate ideas. For example, over the course of a weekend, a student may collect a movie ticket, a ticket stub from a sports event and a small leaf they picked up at grandma's house. These little "mementos" are perfectly fabulous topics that they might otherwise forget to share through their writing.
