The Writing Round-Up {11.2.19}


Welcome to the November 2, 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!
