Welcome to the October 10, 2020 edition of the Teach Write Writing Round-Up, the space where I gather tips for teaching writing and for growing as a teacher who writes.
Be sure that you have joined my email list so you never miss an update!
Now, onto the tips...
Are you teaching writing online this school year? Just because students are not in your classroom does not mean you have to give up the very valuable writing conference. Dana Clark shares a few ways to help students prepare for a successful writing conference in her Teach Write blog post.
Need a way to clear your mind, rev up your creativity, and silence your inner judge before you write? How about your students? Anytime Pages are the answer! Learn more about them here.
Are you a grammar nerd like I am? Read Writer's Digest's "75 Grammar Rules for Writers" to check out some common faux pas in writing. (It would be interesting to share these with students too!)
Teach Write Community member Jen Tan shares an awesome collection of quotes about writing here. Why not share these with students and ask them reflect on their meaning?
