Welcome to the December 8, 2018 edition of The Writing Round-Up, a gathering of tips for teaching writing and for growing as a teacher who writes. We hope your December is off to a great start!
Let's get started...
Start your 2019 writing year off right!
Join one of the Teach Write Time to Write! Online Writing Workshops today to meet and write with other teacher-writers doing the same!
Sessions begin in January.
Melissa Stewart shares four different types of nonfiction in this post. I love this post because it is a great reference for both genre-study and classroom writing instruction.
Pobble 365 shares one new photo prompt every day of the year and even includes teaching and extension ideas. Great for student-writers and teacher-writers alike!
Connie Pertuz-Meza shares how she uses her own writing experience to help her students form their own writing identity in "Mirrors: A Reflection of a Writer Teacher" on Heinemann's Medium blog.
Looking for a way to show your students how their notebook can help them grow their writing life? Lanny Ball shares "Four Purposes for a Writer's Notebook" in his Two Writing Teachers' post.
Check out "Reading and Writing in Math Class" by Alessandra King on the Edutopia blog where she explains how bringing literacy into math (or any content area, really) helps students learn about using it in the world around them.
Are you a list keeper? A bullet-journaler? Want to become one? Ann Kroker shares the many ways we can use lists to grow our writing life and our personal life in her post, "How to Use Lists to Transform Your Writing (and Your Life)."
Have you joined our Facebook group, The Teach Write Community?
We share inspiration, connection, and ideas for writing.
Have a great week!
