National Day on Writing

national-day-on-writingTuesday, October 20, 2015 is the seventh annual National Council of Teachers of English National Day on Writing. The day has been organized annually since 2009 “to draw attention to the remarkable variety of writing Americans engage in and to help make writers from all walks of life aware of their craft.” The day was officially recognized by Senate resolution in 2009. Read, Write, Think offers a variety of resources for teachers to celebrate this day with students, noting “It’s important for everyone to share their knowledge about writing, organize participating groups in our schools and/or communities, and transform the public’s understanding of writing and the role it plays in society today.”
