When teachers write, good things can happen. Writing helps educators to better understand themselves, as well as students, parents, and colleagues. In this session, we will explore how to encourage, lead, and sustain teacher-writers, especially in group contexts. We will describe key practices that we have developed over years of coaching, teaching, and collaborating with K–12 teachers who write about classroom instruction, teacher research, or advocacy for better policy and pedagogy. Knowing firsthand just how hard writing can be for teachers, we provide a repertoire of strategies to elicit writing, to support teachers as they write, to find audiences for the teachers' work, and much more.
