#TWTBlog’s Summer Vacation

After yet another challenging school year, SUMMER IS ALMOST HERE! Even though a teacher’s work is never done, the unstructured summer months are a welcome gift for educators. From all of us at Two Writing Teachers, we hope you have ample opportunities to enjoy some downtime in the months to come!

Even though there won’t be any new posts from now until Sunday, August 1st when our next blog series begins, there is plenty to read from our archives as well as lots to look forward to as we start a new school year!

Our Next Blog Series

Resetting Our Workshop Practices Blog Series - Image of a teacher erasing things she used to do from a whiteboard.

On Monday, August 1st, we will kick off our next blog series, Resetting Our Workshop Practices. The co-author team will share about things we used to do that we’ve moved on from when we teach writing to kids. We hope that sharing our past experiences, it’ll show how each of us has evolved as educators over time.

Each series contains a treasure trove of ideas, visuals, and tools to get you on the right path toward a great start as you begin planning your year.

I am a literacy consultant who has spent the past dozen years working with teachers to improve the teaching of writing in their classrooms. While I work with teachers and students in grades K-6, I'm a former fourth and fifth-grade teacher so I have a passion for working with upper elementary students.

I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).
