Welcome to the September 16, 2019 edition of the Teach Write Writing Round-Up.
Every week, I gather tips for teaching writing and for growing as a teacher who writes and put them right here all in one place.
Be sure that you have joined my email list so you never miss an update!
Now, onto this week's tips!
Safe Spaces for Writing:
Do your students feel like your classroom is a safe space to write and share their writing? Check out my new post, "Creating a Safe Space for Classroom Writing."
Use Writing to Get to Know Your Students:
Karla Hilliard and WVCTE share some fun ways to use writing to get to know your students in their post, "Getting to Know Your Students with Writing."
Putting Students at the Center:
Angela Stockman explores how to use narrative to put students at the center of the workshop in her new post.
DID YOU KNOW THAT Teachers who write...

find teaching writing to be easier?
can respond to their student-writers with empathy & understanding?
find planning for instruction & differentiation easier?
