What do people need to know about your community?
And how can you communicate about it?
It’s time to #WriteMyCommunity
Celebrate NCTE's Sixth Annual
National Day on Writing -- Monday, October 20, 2014
NCTE, the National Writing Project, and The New York Times Learning Network invite you to celebrate writing in all its forms: through photos, film, and graphics; with pens, pencils, and computers; in graphs, etchings, and murals; on sidewalks, screens, and paper.
This year we encourage you to focus your writing on your community in any way you see fit. Post your writing during the National Day on Writing Tweet-Up on October 20 with the hashtag #WriteMyCommunity.
Some examples of writing about community follow, send us your ideas too! Tweet them to #WriteMyCommunity
This year we're also going to talk about what we can learn from the writing we create. Check back regularly for opportunities throughout the month of October and early November to engage in conversations around the assessment of writing that include inquiry into things like:
- How does our analysis of writing drive instruction?
- How do we evaluate writing in all its wonderful forms?
- What can we learn from collaborative discussions around individual pieces of writing?
- And what are implications of a project like the National Day on Writing for the kinds of writing assessment we should be using our schools?
Let us know what you're doing this year to celebrate the National Day on Writing!
