Welcome to the July 20, 2019 edition of The Teach Write Writing Round-Up, a gathering of tips for teaching writing and for growing as a teacher who writes.
I find the tips so you don't have to, so be sure to sign up to have The Writing Round-Up and all of our other updates delivered right to your inbox if you haven't already.
Now, onto this week's tips!
Are you tired of being the gatekeeper of writing in your classroom? Check out "Transferring Ownership of Writing to Students" from Mary Davenport and Edutopia for tips on how to encourage students to take ownership of their own writing.
Writing is can be one of the scariest things we ask our students to do. Matthew Johnson shares some great tips to help change this in his post, "How to Make Writing Less Scary for Students."
Check out Paula Bourque's "The Story Behind Our Stories." What stories are you telling yourself about your writing ability? How about your students?
