Teacher Training/Writing Conferences

See inside my Writer’s Toolbox. Learn how to use an idea folder, writing prompts, and even an egg timer to engage your students. I touch on all parts of the writing process: idea generation, first drafts, revision, fact checking, proofreading, and how to be a successful critique partner. I share how professional writers approach these tasks and how those strategies can be adapted for the classroom.
