October 2017 #NCTEchat: The National Day on Writing

Join us tomorrow, Sunday, October 15, at 8 p.m. ET, on Twitter for an #NCTEchat all about the National Day on Writing®.

The National Day on Writing (October 20) was founded by our members on the premise that writing is critical to literacy but needs greater attention and celebration. Since 2008, we’ve watched thousands of people celebrate writing on October 20 through photos, events, and, of course, the written word, using #WhyIWrite. Join the #NCTEchat on Sunday to connect with other educators and get new ideas and inspiration for ways to celebrate the National Day on Writing on Friday!

Here are the questions for tomorrow’s Twitter chat:

1. Why do you write?

2. What is your go-to mentor text? How do you use it?

3. What is your go-to resource for teaching writing? Why is it important to you?

4. How will you celebrate the National Day on Writing?

5. What is one goal you have for writing/teaching writing?

We hope to see you there! Be sure to join us by using #NCTEchat and #WhyIWrite.
