I sometimes - no often, with this class - wonder what I am doing, trying to teach them anything.

Yesterday we went over, again, how to write a good story. We discussed the need for structure, for paragraphs, for accurate grammar. The boys planned a story themselves.

Today, they wrote the story.

After twenty minutes of solid writing - hardly a space left on the page - Max puts his hand up.

"Are we allowed to use paragraphs?" he asks.
