Introducing The Writing Masters Blog Series

"The real questions for writing teachers are, 'How do we help our students develop a repertoire of approaches to writing? How do we help all writers identify problems, solve them, and take charge of their writing and thinking?'"
—Nancie Atwell

Writing is a complex, nuanced, and sometimes mystical journey. Ideas take shape in ways we wouldn’t expect—and sometimes they struggle to take shape at all. As teachers, we strive to guide our students through this process—to encourage, support, and challenge them. Now imagine having master teachers mentor you along the way. Imagine being invited to pull up a chair and sit shoulder-to-shoulder as they detail their learning goals for a unit, outline a powerful way to present a challenging concept, or expertly confer with a student?

Join us this fall for our Writing Masters blog series with classroom-tested tips from our Curricular Resources authors on how to improve your teaching of writing at any grade level. Each installment in this series will share author insights and practical suggestions on teaching writing in the classroom that you can use the very next day.
