The Writing Round-Up {2.23.19}

Welcome to the February 23, 2019 edition of the Teach Write Writing Round-Up!

Every week, this Writing Round-Up gathers together tips for teaching writing and for growing as a teacher who writes. We put these tips all in one place to help make your job easier. Be sure that you have joined our email list so you never miss an update!

Now, onto this week's tips!

The Power of Low Stakes Writing for Students AND Teachers:

You are hearing more and more about the importance of low-stakes writing in the classroom. But this playful, exploratory writing is not just good for students -- it is good for teachers too! Dawn Sherriff explores more in her inspirational post, "The Power of Low Stakes Writing for Teachers and a Community."

How to Find Your Writing Inspiration:

Are you (or your students) sitting around waiting for inspiration to strike before picking up your pen? Read "Don't Wait for the Muse -- Advice from Stephen King" from Ryan Pelton and The Writer's Cooperative website.

Writing Ideas for the SOL Challenge:

Are you thinking of participating in the Two Writing Teachers' Slice of Life Story Challenge in March, but are worried you won't find enough things to write about? Check out this Padlet from our friend, Christie Wyman, and worry no more.
