Be a part of a community of teacher writers as we explore best practices for nurturing ourselves and our students as writers.


We will be using SPARK! Quick Writes to Kindle Hearts and Minds in Elementary Classroom, by Paula Bourque as our guide. This little book is filled with research, writing inspiration and resources to support teachers in elementary and middle school classrooms. Because the best writing teachers are those who write themselves, we encourage you to try out the writing techniques and prompts that Bourque suggests in each chapter.

Through a private Facebook Community we will connect, support and share our writerly life as teacher writers. A pacing calendar and additional resources will be available through the community.

We will begin our journey on July 8th and conclude on August 4th. We will have the amazing opportunity to meet virtually through Zoom with the author Paula Bourque. All you will need is a copy of Paula Bourque’s book, a writer’s notebook, and a gmail account. The fee is a donation to the Book love project. We suggest a $20 – $50 donation. It includes membership into the Facebook group for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. Participants will have an opportunity to publish their writing on the LitCoachConnection blog and be entered for weekly drawings.
