Welcome to the November 10, 2018 edition of The Writing Round-Up, a gathering of tips for teaching writing and for growing as a teacher writer. We appreciate you stopping by.
Whether you are a teacher of writers or a teacher who writes, we've found some great tips for you this week! Let's get started...
Some of today's most popular YA authors share their tips for writing in this post from She Writes. (Students may enjoy these tips too!)
Do you struggle with telling others that you are a writer? Sometimes feel like a fraud? Enjoy the "The Power of Believing in Yourself as a Writer" podcast from NaNoWriMo for a little much needed encouragement.
Now that the energy and enthusiasm of the beginning of the year has passed, how are you keeping your students engaged with their writing notebook? If you need some ideas, Stacey Shubitz has some for you in her Two Writing Teachers post, "Six Ways to Keep the Energy of Writer's Notebooks Alive All Year Long."
Curious about which is better? Check out this post and infographic, "The Benefits of Writing By Hand Versus Typing" from Lifehacker.
Author Erin Dealey shares her journey in writing from a childhood to adulthood and published author and how she learned to love writing along the way. There's a good chance we all have a student just like her in our classrooms today!
See You at NCTE?:
Are you headed to Houston for NCTE next week? If so, I hope you'll join us on Saturday at 4:30 pm for a Teach Write Meetup and Notebook Exchange. The place is still TBD, but sign up for a text reminder and we will let you know where to find us. Bring a notebook to trade (if you'd like) and one to write in because we will do a little writing too. Can't wait to meet you!
Looking for the #TeachWrite Team at NCTE? Other than our Meet Up on Saturday, here's where we are presenting:
Have a great writing week!
