Overview

At a time when the writing process is sometimes viewed as a seven-step recipe, with revision one of those steps, author Barry Lane inspires language arts teachers to approach the subject with flexibility and playfulness. He encourages both teachers and students to enjoy a sense of discovery and surprise in their writing, as well as to examine and explore their own distinct revising styles.

After "THE END" revises our concept of revision, illustrating it as a constant inventive search for new possibilities and divergent meanings, rather than mere correction or what students wearily refer to as "redoing." For students in upper elementary to secondary school and beyond, and for every teacher looking to develop a common language of craft in the classroom, After "THE END" is a book of practical ideas and applications that inspire the reader to put it down and put it to use.

    Every Writing Teacher Needs This Book!

    I have found this book to be invaluable in teaching writing. The tips and lessons Mr. Lane gives truly motivate students and give them the tools to write amazing things. His writing style and the layout of the book make it very entertaining to read and easy to teach from. The examples he uses from published authors, as well as former students, are helpful to both the educator and the student. This book is always on my desk.

    Revision IS Fun!

    After using just one of Barry Lane's activities in the classroom, any child (or adult!) will find themselves a better writer. The real joy comes in the fact that Barry gives us so many techniques to use, each one as interesting and useful as the next. He has made teaching revision a joy . . . even when the child already thinks The End says it all. I have loaned this book out to many friends over the years, and have already replaced it twice. This is one book I don't want to be without!
