NARST Summer Writing Group

NARST Summer Writing Group

Dear Grad Student Writers and Dissertators,

I just wanted to send a short email to remind you all to join us for the writing group as you can this summer. Use the same zoom link as before, I know it’s expired, but trust me we are still here.  I wanted to bring up this regular community writing opportunity because as of today we're almost six months through the year, so when we reflect on our 2021 goals if completing projects is one of those goals this is the opportunity. I also want to bring it up because summer is a good time to try to get ahead on some of the things that you want to accomplish before the fall and completed things you started in the spring.  We know how hectic the fall semester is and as of today, there are 55-days until the first day of the fall semester.  Summer is indeed fleeting, so we need to use these days wisely.

A few anecdotes on people who made the best of this writing community:

·        David was able to complete a project passion and got his first authored publication out there.  If you're interested see the link Maintaining pluralism when embedding computational thinking in required science and engineering classes with young adolescents David W. JacksonYihong Cheng 

·        Tiffany was able to move her dissertation work from the initial stages to the recruitment phase of her research

·         Hildah was able to complete her dissertation writing, defend, and used the writing group to do her final revisions

As for myself I was able to write a great fellowship application and was offered and accepted the fellowship for the fall. Long story short join us, good things happen in the NARST writing group.

You are invited to a Zoom meeting.

When: NOW through August 27, 2021 01:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Register in advance for this meeting:


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Have a great productive summer,
