Each stage of the writing process is covered in detail, from setting a purpose for writing to drafting, revising, editing, and producing a finished product. The goal is to provide a comprehensive overview of writing development and best practices in teaching, richly illustrated with examples of student work. Teachers learn strategies and techniques to help students work independently and in groups to develop meaningful projects- master needed skills through engaging mini-lessons- produce various forms of fiction and nonfiction writing- and use literature as a source of inspiration and modeling. Special features include Teachers Tips and quick-reference lists that reinforce key points and aid in instructional planning. An invaluable Appendix provides booklists for mini-lessons on a variety of thematic, stylistic, and grammatical topics.
