Ready to Write

Ms Montilla introduced the phrase 'mise en place' by sharing a photograph. We thought about the identity of the person who prepared the items on the photo and many of us agreed that it was a chef! In pairs, we wrote down our reply to the question,"What is the chef preparing for? What do these items mean? What is next?' There were many ideas shared, one of which was that everything was organized. Mise en place is a culinary term which means everything is in place and the person is ready to proceed. Based on that idea, we wondered if we could apply it to other identities. Mr Scott then showed us his mise en place as an author. He had a lot of interesting things but we helped him think about what was essential for him to start writing. We drew our own mise en place as authors and have now pledged to use it as a guide to prepare ourselves as authors.
