Introducing The Writing Masters Blog Series 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.
