The Cure for IDK is our Writing Fellows best resource for teaching our DeepKids. Each Writing Fellows receives a free PDF copy of IDK, and can check out a hard copy for the semester via our office.
IDK isn’t a typical lesson book. It is frank, funny, and full of lessons that are simultaneously entertaining and challenging. More importantly, it specifically appeals to middle school students–the bright-eyed eager beavers as well as the more apathetic adolescents. Each of the 36 lessons within fully integrates reading, writing, and oral presentation skills by offering interactive games, engaging reading selections, copious peer examples, and exciting writing prompts. IDK shows students not just how to write but why they should want to–and how much fun it can be. Use these lessons individually, in units, or as a year-long weekly curriculum and watch your students’ love for literature grow.
