Welcome to the May 26, 2018 edition of the Teach Write Writing Round-Up, a gathering of tips for teaching writing and for growing as a teacher who writes. We appreciate you stopping by!
As you begin to think about your summer plans, don't forget about online writing workshops that will be starting in the end of June in the Teach Write Academy. Either one is a great opportunity to meet other teacher-writers and get some writing done this summer. Come write with us!
For Teachers of Writers
The Process is Not Always Pleasant:
Being a writer -- and writing -- is not always sunshine and rainbows, but it must go on. Author/consultant Jeff Anderson explores his process for writing in "Slippery Things: The Process is Writing" which he wrote for the Two Writing Teachers' Author Spotlight series this week.
Shift of Mindset:
The Go Teen Writers website shared a great post to demonstrate three ways to shift your mindset to find more success as a writer. This is great information for both teachers and students.
Creative Peer Conferencing:
If you are looking for some different ways to approach peer conferencing, the We Are Teachers article, "5 Peer Conferencing Strategies That Actually Work" has got you covered.
For Teachers Who Write
Tips for Summer Writing:
Don't let summer pass you by without meeting your writing goals! Allison Marchetti of Moving Writers has nine tips to get you (and keep you writing) this summer.
Small Steps to Success:
What is holding you back from writing? Excuses? Fear? Lack of Inspiration? Read Alex Mather's "Ten Small Steps to Living the Good Life" for small steps you can take to put these things in their place and smash those writing goals.
The Discipline of a Writer:
I came across the post, "Writing Daze" on the website, Writer UnBoxed, and was mesmerized by the story of John Steinbeck's journey to writing and publishing The Grapes of Wrath. Seems he, too, had doubts in his writing abilities.
