The Writing Round-Up {10.19.19}

Welcome to the October 19, 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!

National Day on Writing:

The NCTE National Day on Writing is October 20! Looking for a way to celebrate with your students when you return to school on Monday? NCTE has many resources for you to use.

Help Students Find Their OWN Writing Process:

How do we help students take "the" writing process and make it their own? Dawn Sherriff explores this important question and has a few suggestions in her post, "No 'Right' Way."

Content Area Writing:

Curious about how to teach writing skills in the content areas? Lynne Dorfman has got you covered in her post, "Content Area Writing is "Thinking Written Down'" from Middleweb.

Your Invite to Write:

Are you ready to grow as a writer? Join us on Tuesdays evenings in November for our next Time to Write! Online Writing Workshop. More info can be found here.

Student Writing Awards:

NCTE has shared their latest list of student writing awards. Check it out here.

Writing Rituals:

Take a look at how these writers get themselves ready to write in this post from the Writing Routines website. Do you (or your students) have a routine to get the words flowing?


Are you looking for a new writing podcast? Check out the #AmWriting podcast. Lots of great episodes!

Write it Out:

Here are even more reasons to write by hand in this post from Standout Books. (It would be interesting to find out what students think about this topic...)


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

Write away!
