As language teachers, we probably do a fair amount of writing already. We write for our students; on the board in class, on student homework, in interactive journals, plus creating the odd text for teaching purposes. This webinar touched on these forms of writing and also on the kind we do for ourselves, such as when writing lesson plans and filling in our teaching journals. We can too choose to do some writing that reaches other teachers. Not because we are desperate to get published, make money or become better known (though all that might be fun!) but mostly because we want to share, keep interested in our work and keep learning our trade. Join Tessa Woodward, for some practical tips and ideas on all these kinds of writing.
