Columbia University’s Teachers College has an exceptional resource in their Reading and Writing Project’s updated site. (We often refer to their program by the acronym TCRWP (Teachers College Reading Writing Project.) You can browse from their home page here or go directly to their resources page here.
If you are a teacher of writing, you’re going to want to take a peek at the blog, Two Writing Teachers. On their mission page they state:
“Good teaching is good teaching. Too often we get caught up in what’s happening in our own classroom walls or in the faculty lounge of our own school building. This blog is a place that erases all of those barriers and focuses simply on teaching kids to write and catching minds in the midst. It’s happening in cities, in suburbs, and in small towns all over the globe.
TWO WRITING TEACHERS is a place:
For teachers to be fueled with a passion for teaching, writing, and living.
For teachers to see the latest in research and ways to apply it in their classrooms.
For us to “practice what we preach” by sharing our own writing.
To bring writing teachers together to share ideas and stretch each other’s thinking.
To reflect on our teaching — celebrating when it goes well and working it out when it doesn’t.”
