I have been doing a lot of reading up and working on writing as well and have several resources to share with you over the next few weeks.
Resource 1: An amazing blog series by Two Writing Teachers titled Reaching Your Writers. There are a series of posts about getting to know your students’ writing identities, creating spaces to write, transitions, and even the kinds of paper choices for writing. This blog is truly a go-to resource of ideas and affirmations for us as teachers of writing.
