6 Must-Follow Twitter Accounts for ELA Teachers

Twitter has become a powerful resource for teachers looking for ideas and inspiration. There are so many educational Twitter accounts for ELA teachers and it can be hard to know where to start. English Language Arts teachers can use this list of Twitter accounts to learn about online resources, find lesson plans and connect with likeminded educators. It’s a go to resource, and I’m constantly checking in to see what other educators are chatting about.

On this blog I shared some favorites around social media best practices. This includes a course and book you might want to check out as you dive into Twitter. Getting started may seem daunting but I’ve created a list of the a few accounts you’re want to add to your list as you decide who to follow.
