The No-Nonsense Guide to Teaching Writing: Strategies, Structures, and Solutions
Filling their book with specific how-to details, Judy Davis and Sharon Hill describe the organization of a successful yearlong writing workshop, centered on writing cycles and the writing notebook. They help teachers prepare tools, address management issues, get the work started, and build momentum as students increase their understanding of good writing practice. Their companion website, http://www.heinemann.com/davis-hill, offers forms, reproducibles, and additional student samples.
