The Writing Round-Up {1.11.20}


Welcome to the January 11, 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...

Deanna Mascle has some great ideas on how you can build community in your classroom with writing. Perfect for any time of the year, but especially appropriate for the beginning of the semester. Find out more here.

When Students Hate Writing:

Have students who don't like to write? "Appreciating the Possibilities of Writing" from Ellen Subich and NCTE shares some important ideas for helping us all think about writing in new ways.


Notebooking into the New Year:

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.


Rethinking DOL:

Melanie Meehan shares why asking students to identify grammar mistakes in an example sentence might not actually help students learn grammar rules in her post, "The Importance of Correct Examples" from Choice Literacy.


Restarting Your Writing:

Author/blogger Ann Kroeker has some tips for getting your writing life moving again in her podcast and post, "How to Gather Momentum When Your Writing's at a Standstill."
