You know that you need to teach grammar. But when you look at your students’ writing, you’re overwhelmed. How can you possibly explain a semicolon or all of the comma rules when your students can’t even write a complete sentence? I’ve gone through the same struggle, my friend.

In this post, I hope to help show you how to teach grammar (especially to struggling students).Read More
FREEBIE: The LIT Teacher Series
Hi, I'm Heather!
I know this feeling because I’ve had it too! I’ve thought about walking out of my classroom door and never looking back. Instead, however, I asked myself, “Why did I do this in the first place? Why did I get this degree and take this job?”
My answer is always the same: literature is pure magic. It has inspired me, motivated me, and taught me throughout my whole life. Everyone deserves to connect to a profound piece of literature. And when I remember that, my job began to feel less like a job and more like a calling.
So here I am, on a mission to help re-inspire teachers like you and get you psyched about the power of literature. As the kids say, “It’s Lit!” Teaching literature, that is.
