Now, on to this week's Round-Up!

For Teachers of Writers

The Misunderstood Writing Process:

We've all seen the charts that show the writing process as an orderly progression from one stage to the next. However, the writing process is truly anything but orderly as Stacey Shubitz explains in her We Are Teachers article, "The Writing Process Isn't Linear. So Why Do Schools Keep Pretending That It is?"

The Power of Positive Feedback from a Real Audience:

I am a true believer that nothing increases motivation and engagement in writing than writing for an authentic audience, someone beyond the classroom teacher. In "The Power of Positive Feedback and Publishing" from Avra Robinson and EdTech Teacher, you'll see why.

Writing Workshop Refresher:

Angela Stockman has created an amazing resource for teachers curious about the writing workshop or who are looking to refine their workshop. Check out "Our Writing Workshop Launchpad" for more information. You'll love it!
