This week’s Ted Ed list of talks we curated for you revolves around the theme: writer’s workshop. This is basically a playlist prepared by Ted Ed Channel on YouTube featuring 16 Ted Ed video lessons from which we selected the ones below. The talks are particularly ideal for classroom inclusion. You can use them with your students to teach them about some of the mechanics of writing and raise their consciousness to the important elements that make a good piece of writing.

2- The power of simple words – Terin Izil

3- The power of a great introduction – Carolyn Mohr
