6 Awesome Writing Quotes ( Posters )


Teaching writing is not only about teaching a skill that students need to mechanically master through a set of predefined and timed assignments, it is most importantly  about teaching a passion, a love for writing. Students need to love writing before they engage in its intricacies. The mechanics of writing ( style, grammar, punctuation..etc) will eventually develop as students passion for writing evolves and grows.

I have had the chance in my MA Ed to have a course called struggling writers in which I got to study several approaches to teaching writing but not one of them was as successful as the one that advocates teaching writing as a situated act. In situated writing students get to write about their own experiences in real life and share them with their peers, they get to express themselves through writing . The writing workshop is one way to do it. I wont get into details in thisbecause it is beyond the scope of this short post  but  I can provide whoever interested in this topic with more reading resources ( contact me at med@educatorstechnology.com ).


Today I am sharing with you some awesome posters on writing that I came across in  reading addicts. You can use these posters with your students to boost their writing moral up and probably yours too . Enjoy.
