    Everything I Know About Teaching Language Arts I Learned at the Office Supply Store - National Writing Project

  • Katie Moerdyk

    This is the National Writing Project website. The page that I focused on was on motivation for students in writing. The website gave ideas to get students interested in writing and encourage writing outside of the classroom. The website also provides other activities for getting students interested in writing. I pinned this because I feel that motivation is some of my difficulties in teaching writing. Hopefully some of these ideas will be helpful in my classroom.
