February Writing Tweet Roundup!
One of my favorite movies is “Working Girl”, starring Melanie Griffith as Tess McGill. In one scene, Tess describes an idea she had based on an article she read in W. A snooty character retorts, “You read W?” and Tess answers, “I read a lot of the things. You never know where a big idea will come from.”
This line always stayed with me because I believe the more widely I read, the more ideas and inspiration I find for all areas of my life, most especially teaching. This is one of the reasons I love Twitter. There are so many interesting articles, quotes, ideas, stories, blogs, and photographs to experience each day. I’ve learned about educators, books, apps, websites and more by being a connected educator. It is my pleasure to share with you my favorite tweets related to the teaching of writing this month. Tomorrow starts our Slice of Life Story Challenge and the Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge for Students! Bring on March!
