The Writing Round-Up {9.21.19}

Welcome to the September 21, 2019 edition of the Teach Write Writing Round-Up.

Every week, I gather tips for teaching writing and for growing as a teacher who writes and put them right here all in one place.

Be sure that you have joined my email list so you never miss an update!

Now, onto this week's tips!

Reading/Writing Connection:

Enjoy "What Reading Slowly Taught Me About Writing," a powerful TED Talk from Jackie Woodson.

SEL & Quick Writes:

Get to know your students and help them get to know themselves by using quick writes in your classroom as Paula Bourque explains in her Stenhouse post, "How to Use SEL Quick Writes to SPARK a Supportive Classroom."

Share Time:

Alan Wright explores the importance of share time in the writing workshop in "Share Time: Essential to the Writing Workshop."


DID YOU KNOW THAT Teachers who write...

  • are stronger teachers of writers?

  • find teaching writing to be easier?

  • can respond to their student-writers with empathy & understanding?

  • find planning for instruction & differentiation easier?

  • are great people to know?

If you are ready to grow as a teacher who writes,

please join us in the

Time to Write Online Writing Workshop

Tuesday evenings this October

More information and registration can be found here.


Creative Journaling:

Lynda Barry is the master of creative journaling. I can't recommend her book, Syllabus, enough (affiliate link). Read more about Barry's unique style here.

Focus on Spelling:

I love Marina Rodriguez's post, "Spelling in a Writing Workshop" on the Two Writing Teachers website. This is a topic that needs more attention.

You're Not a Bad Writer:

Think you're a bad writer? Then you need to read "When You Think Your Writing Sucks" from the Writers in the Storm Website.



See you back here next week for the next edition of The Writing Round-Up.

Write away!
