The Writing Round-Up {2.15.20}

Welcome to the February 15, 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...

Capturing Conversation:

Alan Wright shares how we can help students listen for lines and write engaging dialogue in his post, "Speaking of Dialogue - Helping Young Writers Harness Spoken Word."

Students' Writing Identities:

Pernille Ripp shares her thoughts on how teachers can respectfully help their students develop their own writing identity in her post, "On Honoring Student Writing Identity."


Mike & Hattie of Moving Writers share how teachers can use mini writing conferences to make a huge impact in "Mini Conferences, Major Payoffs: Why You Should Confer About Low Stakes Writing."

Reading Writing Out Loud:

The Institute for Children's Literature explains how reading writing out loud helps the writer hear their writing voice and makes polishing writing easier in "Time for a Sound Check?" (Great for students too!)

101 Creative Writing Prompts:

The Write Life website has 101 Creative Writing Prompts to inspire you to write!

Fall in Love with Writing:

Edie Melson shares 10 Things to Help You Fall Back in Love with Writing.

Time to Write:

Enrollment for the March Time to Write Online Writing Workshop for Teacher-Writers is now open! Set aside 90 minutes each week to write with a small, fun group of teacher-writers without ever leaving home! More info can be found in the Teach Write Academy.


That's all for this week's edition of the Teach Write Writing Round-Up. I will see you again next week with more tips!
