Welcome to this week's edition of the Writing Round-Up! We are getting super excited to head to St. Louis for the NCTE Annual Convention next week to take in all the amazingness that is literacy. Will you be there? Tweet us at @TeachWriteEDU and let us know!
We've got a great Writing Round-Up for you this week so let's get started:
For Teachers of Writers
We've seen the annotated-list headlines everywhere: Seven Ways to Start Your Day, Ten Books Your Classroom Needs, Seven Ideas for Teaching Fractions , or even my own Five Myths About Teaching Writing. This style of writing is catchy and gets right to the point quickly. Readers like it. How can we teach our students to add this style of writing to their writing toolkits? " Your New Favorite Form of Writing, Revealed" from Shawna Coppola will show you!
The Library of Congress is sponsoring the Letters About Literature contest for students in grades 4-12. More information can be found here.
