You need a pathway to reach your writers.

Not another box of curriculum promising to help you teach the writing standards.

And, I can help.

See, there’s a myth going around that writing teachers need…

More time —> “Holy cow! What on earth can I do in 50 minutes?”

More tools —> “Best digital tools to teach grammar — AND GO!”

Better curriculum —> “This isn’t working. Any good resources to teach narrative writing?”

But, you don’t actually NEED any of those to teach students to write well.

What you DO need is a guide on the side to help you make sense of all the tools you already have!

(And, spoiler alert: You don’t need to buy a single one of these.)

You can help students become independent writers, but it’s time TO STOP…

Trying to do it alone —> because a collective of brilliant minds is way better than just one.

That’s why I created:

The writing teacher’s toolkit membership

And, if the name doesn’t say it all - let me break down how this thing works.

This is a membership for middle and secondary writing teachers, and we’re not dishing out pretty templates and unit plants.

Those are cute and helpful, but that’s not what we’re about.

We’re super-obsessed with STRATEGY and IMPLEMENTATION.

Because those are the two essentials that GET RESULTS.

Because the reality is, it doesn’t matter what unit you teach…if you teach it well.

It doesn’t matter what mentor text you use. (There are lots of fantastic ones to choose from.)

And, it doesn’t matter if you only have 15 minutes to teach writing (though we wouldn’t want that).

What matters most is that students are…

[1] writing;

[2] learning to find their own voice;

[3] learning to create, play and imagine human possibilities…through writing;

[4] and learning valuable writing skills in the process

Getting students to write doesn’t have to be a chore.

And, getting them to write well?

That’s actually easier than you think.

No matter what curriculum your school is implementing.

No matter how much time you have to teach writing.

No matter how small your interest in writing is.

Inside of the Writing Teacher’s Toolkit Community, you’ll get monthly support to help you consistently engage students with lessons that increase their creativity and their writing skills. Win-win!
