Accessible and reader-friendly, this is the definitive book on teaching writing to children in grades K-8, the only title on the market to thoroughly address both the "process" and the "product" of writing. Covers strategies for teaching prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing through writing workshops, literature focus units, and thematic units; techniques for helping children develop ideas, organize writing, choose vocabulary, apply stylistic devices, and correct mechanical errors; and, five levels of scaffolded composition instruction: modeled, shared, interactive, guided, and independent writing. For language arts enthusiasts in which their focus is on writing or teaching writing.
