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.
Science author Melissa Stewart has generously shared several writing mini-lessons on her website. You can find them here.
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."
Teacher/author Alan Wright encourages us teacher-writers to make a commitment to our writer's notebook in 2020 and shares a few ways to make that happen in this post.
If joining a writing group is on your list for 2020, consider joining the January Time to Write Online Writing Workshop in our Teach Write Academy. Meet with teacher-writers from around the country one night a week to work on your writing -- and never leave home! More info can be found here.
Thanks for reading! I'll see you back here next week for the next edition of The Writing Round-Up.
