I am sitting in my seminar with teachers from my district being tasked to write about my day so that I can further study how writing can impact teaching practices… by writing. And I am thinking to myself, “Well, this sounds awfully familiar…”
So, here I am, not necessarily writing about my day, but finding it interesting that this topic of teachers writing to become better writing teachers is becoming more widespread. These teachers wrote a book that they’re (slightly) promoting over the next half an hour, but I like this format, too. This interactive format or teachers helping teachers write through writing. Lots of repetition, but then also lots of reinforcement. I like the community-building across states and districts that hardly ever cross my mind. I like feeling close to people who are far.
I also am learning to advocate to teachers that writing is the best way to help with… writing. But, I think I’ll be sticking to this medium for now in order to help.
