I forgot to post this yesterday, but this was the book I read the first chapter of for First Chapter Monday in all of my English classes yesterday. It was a huge hit, and was checked out from my classroom library immediately! #firstchaptermonday #teachersoflitsy #englishteacher #classroomlibrary

This book isn't just for writing teachers, but for all teachers and administrators who have ever questioned why students and/or teachers struggle. For me, it felt a little like he was preaching to the choir, but also validating my philosophies and practices. There were a few takeaways that will help me improve my practice as a teacher of writing. What more could I ask? #teachersoflitsy

Karisa My daughter has struggled with this too. She's had panic attacks over a paragraph. Seems like it's starting to get a little better this year, finally, in 10th grade. Her teacher also told them to turn in papers with pseudonyms on them for grading. After grading, the students reveal who wrote it for the score. She said that has really helped her write! 🤷‍♀️ 5d

I was cleaning and came across this letter from a student among the cards and notes I received when I retired from teaching six years ago. For all the #teachersofLitsy who have just returned/are soon to return to school, a little reminder of why we do what we do. I may be retired, but I will always be a teacher.

#teachersoflitsy just a little back-to-school reading. I finished the tagged book a few days ago. Miller is singing to the choir with that one. Anyone else prepping to go back to class?

She does two fantastic activities that I know my students would love. I can pay for her time (out of pocket), but travel expenses may be too much. I‘m going to try and partner with an independent bookstore to make it happen. 🤞🏻#TeachersOfLitsy #Poetry

"Writing is thinking, and I have yet to meet a writer who thinks in sentences. To suggest we must know sentences before we start to write is a lie."

taraWritesSci Ah! I've wanted to read this book, and a quote like this is the exact reason why. 💛 1w
