A National Day on Writing Toolkit
The National Day on Writing®, October 20, is built on the premise that writing is critical to literacy but needs greater attention and celebration. Since 2009 we’ve seen hundreds of thousands of people share their responses and engage in activities around the theme of #WhyIWrite. Their collective voices are raising the volume on this issue.
When you host a National Day on Writing event, you help to elevate that conversation and this toolkit can help you do just that. Share what you do via the #WhyIWrite hashtag.
#NCTEchat is a fast-paced monthly Twitter chat where incredible ideas fly and solid advice comes in 280-character snippets. Join the conversation!
- October #NCTEchat: Sunday, October 20, 8:00 p.m. EST
- A Celebration of the National Day on Writing
- Featuring questions from the #NCTEvillage about challenges in writing instruction.
