Day 28: What’s in my bag?

Last year, I was inspired by a student post to write about what’s in my school bag as a way to generate story ideas. Stuck for ideas tonight, and short on time, so here I go again.

What’s in my bag? (2016 version)

  1. Post-its of all shapes and sizes, and a range of colors
  2. A clipboard for taking notes of my conferences with students
  3. A separate clipboard for taking notes of my classroom visits and meetings
  4. Lots of pens
  5. Cough drop wrappers
  6. Loose change
  7. My writing notebooks (I have three – one for each different type of writing0
  8. My writing folder
  9. My wallet
  10. My new reading glasses
  11. Keys
  12. My binder of plans and handouts for the graduate course I’m teaching
  13. A small package of tissues

  1. Oh God, I shudder to think what’s in my bag. This would make an interesting short story though for a student. I could totally get into that. Interesting, notebook filler and slice. 🙂
