Welcome teachers to a new year! We hope you’re feeling renewed after the winter break, ready to jump into this final half of the year with your writers.
Just like getting back to the gym after a long time away is awkward and exhausting, getting back to a regular writing practice is often a frustrating experience of fits and starts. This could be true for you; it’s most certainly for your students. To help shake off the dust on those daybooks and pens, we’ve compiled some strategies to get YOU and YOUR STUDENTS back to writing. Think of these like the Jazzercise class you sign up for on a whim in the second week of January. Is it something you’d do every week? Nah, probably not. But it’s just ridiculous enough to draw you back to exercising. Embrace the weird, and write on y’all!
