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...
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."
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."
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!)
The Write Life website has 101 Creative Writing Prompts to inspire you to write!
Edie Melson shares 10 Things to Help You Fall Back in Love with Writing.
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!
