The Writing Round-Up {3.07.20}


Welcome to the March 7, 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...


Adding Details:

Ever told your students to “add more details?” Alan Wright gives specific craft moves to help students in “Helping Young Writers Understand the Significance of Details”.


How to be a Great Writer:

Whether you are writing a book or a blog post, Stephen King has 22 tips for you in “22 Lessons From Stephen King On How To Be A Great Writer”.


One Pagers:

Writing about reading doesn’t have to be all in words. Why not try a one-pager which combines art with writing? Betsy Potash shares her tips in this post on The Cult of Pedagogy.


Write with Your Students:

Building a classroom writing community begins with the teacher becoming a writer first. Read Stacey Shubitz’s article, Why Teachers Need to Write with Students” on Middleweb and learn how to become the lead writer in your classroom.


Do You Really Need a Writers Group?:

If you are considering joining a writers group, check out these tips from The Write Conversation Blog.


Writing Inspiration:

Waiting for inspiration to strike may not be a productive idea, but a daily writing habit just might be. Jane Anne Staw explains more in “The Myth of Inspiration.


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!
