ICYMI: Nurturing Independence From the Start


For the past several days, the Two Writing Teachers co-author team has been sharing posts to help you nurture independence from the start in your writing workshop. As workshop teachers, the goal is always to establish and sustain independence within our writers. We hope you have been inspired and encouraged to try new strategies, resources, and tips to create a community of independent writers this year.

In case you missed it, here is the list of links and titles from the entire series conveniently in one place!

We hoped you enjoyed all of the posts and find them helpful as you begin a new school year! This whole week we collected comments and randomly selected two winners for Jennifer Jacobson’s fabulous books from our giveaway!

The winner of No More “I’m Done!” is Victoria Serecin, a second-grade teacher.

The winner of No More “How Long Does It Have to Be?” is Judy Marshall, a fourth-grade teacher.


Finally, we hope you will join us this evening for a Twitter Chat at 8:30 p.m. EDT using the hashtag #TWTBlog to join in for final thoughts on this important topic! Share your questions, ideas, and expertise with our Two Writing Teachers community tonight!
