Happy New Year!!
Welcome to the January 4, 2020 edition of the Teach Write Writing Round-Up. Thank you for stopping by!
Every week, I gather tips for teaching writing and for growing as a teacher who writes and put them right here in the Writing Round-Up.
Be sure that you have joined my email list so you never miss an update!
Now, onto the tips...
Start collecting your own mentor text lessons and help your students see the connection between reading & writing. The Writing Mindset website will show you how in their post, "Start a Mentor Text Routine in 3 Easy Steps."
Michelle Haseltine as created the #100DaysofNotebooking challenge and she'd like YOU to join her! If keeping a notebook is something you've always wanted to do or you want to expand your notebooking skills, join us! You can find more info here.
Have a short amount of time to each both reading AND writing? Check out "Balancing Reading and Writing Workshop in a 50 Minute Class Period" from Melissa Sethna and the Three Teachers Talk website for some ideas on how to fit it all in.
I love this post from Shawna J.C. Tenney on using a storyboard to plan narrative writing. I think it has a lot of classroom applications too! (It sure would help students who struggle with pacing.)
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.
