When Sinead mentioned micro-journaling for 5 minutes or 3 minutes or even 1 minute every day, I  made a sideways leap to the idea I would like to try with students. I quickly remembered  that she was talking about teachers regularly  writing down their thoughts in their teaching. 

Journaling or micro-journaling is primarily for the writer to re-read and think about with a view to trying something different, but maybe sharing these thoughts with others could be productive for teachers. 

And what about for students? Apart from the obvious benefits for writing fluency  of writing for, say, 3 minutes every day, how could sharing it with others be used to get further benefits to all?
