The Writing Round-Up {1.18.20}

Welcome to the January 18, 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 this week's tips...

100 Best Websites for Writers:

Looking for some online writing tips and inspiration? Check out The Write Life website's annual 100 Best Websites for Writers. Organized by category, this is a great resource to keep handy!

Quotes to Inspire You:

If you are a quote collector like I am, you will enjoy this list of writing quotes from The Write Practice.


Is you or your students' writing motivation stifled when facing the blank page? Check out Scatter Pages, a way of writing that moves beyond the boundaries of the page and lets imagination fly!

Keeping Students at the Center:

It is easy to lose students' voice and agency when we must teach from a prescribed curriculum. "Embracing Student Voice and Agency in a Composition Curriculum" from the Writers Who Care website details ways you can keep your students at the center of your writing instruction.

When Students Don't Like to Write:

Have students who push back at writing time? Our friends at the Writing for Pleasure website share some reasons why this happens and ways you can help students see the value in writing in their recent post.

The Art of Teaching Writing:

Travis Crowder takes a moment to reflect on his growth as a writing teacher in his recent post, "The Pull of What You Love." It is both inspirational and relatable. Check it out!

Looking for Your Writing Group?:

Registration for the February Teach Write Time to Write Online Writing Workshop is now open! We meet on either Tuesday or Wednesday evenings online via Zoom. More info and registration can be found here.
