NCTE’s National Day on Writing is Saturday, Oct. 20th. Our Illinois Writing Project is actually celebrating it on Wed. Oct. 17th, knowing that teachers need their Saturday to shop, do laundry, and get their life together after another intense week of supporting kids’ learning. This day was actually declared by the U.S. Senate, back when they could agree on a few things. So everyone reading this should write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper TODAY. Let people know that this is happening and that teachers everywhere are helping kids learn how to write effectively and with commitment. And check out both NCTE’s page and the National Writing Project’s page on it.
