We’re back with more fun and practical strategies to get students breezing through those writing standards! Jessica and I absolutely love coming together every week to chat about teaching ELA. It is such a passion for us, but for every teacher out there who is feeling stressed and burned out, even though the year has hardly begun, we hear you and we see you.
2020 is putting us all through the wringer, but we are here to support you in every way we can. Let’s focus on the joy we can bring to our day-to-day lessons, no matter where we are this fall. Use these engaging strategies–in person OR online–to help your students gain confidence and build skills in ELA. The best part of today’s tips? No essays required!
