Inspire Writing: 15+ Tips and Resources

Recently added to the Survival Tips for Teachers!

“I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I’m afraid of. ” – Joss Whedon

Writing is personal. Each time we write we share ourselves. Our writings expose our ideas, thought-process, arguments, logic, inspiration, and words. As educators, we should handle each piece of writing with care as if it is a very personal gift our students are sharing with us and their peers. We can help our students feel more confident about themselves through their writing. Digital tools help us to improve our students’ writings. There are tools for quicker peer editing and feedback, apps to improve grammar, and sites filled with graphic organizers to help students learn the structure of various types of writings. Find various handouts and lesson ideas in my book, Learning to Go. Below, I have included the slides for my recent webinar, Teach Writing with Digital Tools. Keep scrolling to access the bookmarks.
