The Writing Round-Up {12.07.19}

Welcome to the December 7, 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!

Where do you stand on using rubrics to grade writing? Read "I am an English Teacher. Rubrics are No Way to Teach Writing" from Peter Machera and Education Week for more.

Mini-Lesson Videos:

Science author Melissa Stewart has generously shared several writing mini-lessons on her website. You can find them here.

Quick Writes as Playful Inquiry:

Teacher/author Paula Bourque shares ways to bring quick writes into your classroom as a playful tool for inquiry and reflection in her post, "Creating Playgrounds for Writers."
