Digital forms of quick writing—like tweets, sketchnotes and instagram posts—allow exciting new opportunities for students to generate text frequently across the curriculum to summarize, question, or synthesize thinking. Using online text as mentor tech, we can teach students to make an image, diagram or visual to enhance their writing. Most exciting, micro-writing can support students in not simply revising pieces, but revising their entire voice as students publish online for an authentic audience. You’ll leave with new ideas and practical lesson ideas for your own teaching of writing.
