In Case You Missed it: Dreaming Big in This Year’s Writing Workshop

Thank you for joining us for our blog series Dreaming Big in This Year’s Writing Workshop. We hope you will join us for a Twitter Chat on Monday, August 13th at 8:30 EDT. We’ll be sharing and learning at #TWTBlog.

In case you missed any pieces from our series, here’s a quick review of the week of posts with the links, as well. Each post is full of ideas and inspiration.

Betsy launched the series with her post about writing partnerships. She has amazing tools and resources to help us all navigate partnerships in our workshops.

On Monday, Deb wrote a post about ways to use technology more intentionally and meaningfully.

Lanny’s Tuesday post will inspire all of us to make time and write alongside our students.

My post on Wednesday deals with ways to write strategically so that we model not only how to write well, but also how to handle predictable problems we see in writing workshops.

Don’t miss Stacey’s post about record-keeping.  There are so many ideas and resources for managing student progress.

On Friday, Kelsey wrote about making toolkits for units, and her videos and presentations about them are sure to inspire!

Beth wrote about ways to organize and expand mentor text collections, and her post was shared on Saturday.

If you’re looking for great ideas for making the most of share time, don’t miss Kathleen’s post!

We’re looking forward to chatting about these topics and more on Monday night, August 13th at 8:30 EDT. Please join us at #TWTBlog!
