The Writing Round-Up {1.25.20}

Welcome to the January 25, 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...

Writing IS Professional Development:

I say it all the time: Teachers who write make the best teachers of writers. There is so much we can learn about teaching writing by reflecting on our own writing lives. Megan Kortlandt explores how we can use reflection of our own writing process to support our classroom writing instruction in her "Writing IS Professional Development" post on Moving Writers.

The Misunderstood Semicolon:

If you are confused about where and how to use a semicolon, you are not alone. Check out "Semicolon: Two Ways to Use a ;" from The Write Practice for a pretty concise lesson.

A Place to Write:

Do you have a special place where you like to write? Do your students? Barbara Linn Probst takes us on a tour of possible writing spaces in her post, "A Place to Write" from the Writers in the Storm blog.
