Teaching Writing

writing activities for middle school

Teaching how to write effectively is one of the most important life-long skills educators impart to their students. When teaching writing, educators must be sure to select resources and support materials that not only aid them in teaching how to write, but that will also be the most effective in helping their students learn to write.

Time4Writing.com offers educators a number of resources that assist in teaching writing. Teachers will find free writing resources on grading, writing conventions, and the use of graphic organizers. There are also valuable articles and activities on other related writing topics, like sentence writing, paragraph writing, and essay writing. The articles provide information and guidance, while the activities motivate students to practice their skills with printable worksheets, quizzes, video lessons, and interactive games. Students love learning and practicing skills using technology, which makes online courses a great way to keep them interested and motivated to learn to write.

For educators needing a K-5 writing and grammar curriculum, WritingCity provides ready-to-use digital lessons, instructional videos, and an online student writing platform to facilitate blended learning. The award-winning elementary writing curriculum was created by teachers, for teachers and is Common Core aligned.
