The Writing Round-Up {3.30.19}


Welcome to the March 30, 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!

Editing Tips from Authors:

Teacher Ashley Booth sent out a tweet asking authors for a one-tweet tips for editing that could be shared with students. The responses were so plentiful, a Google doc was created. You can check out the responses here.

Putting Imposter Syndrome to Rest:

Have you convinced yourself that you don't have what it takes to be a writer? That your writing is 'bad'? That no one wants to read what you write? You'll definitely want to check out "Eight Ways Writers Can Combat Imposter Syndrome" from Kristin Kieffer and the Well-Storied website. (I also HIGHLY recommend the book, The War of Art, by Steven Pressfield for more on this topic too!)

Genius Hour & The Writing Workshop:

Rebekah O'Dell and the Moving Writers website is running a fabulous series on combining Genius Hour and the Writing Workshop. You can check out this week's post about finding ideas here.
