This book offers 50 creative writing lesson plans from the imaginative and highly acclaimed 826 National writing labs.

These writing lessons are written by experts—and favorite novelists, actors, and other entertainers pitched in too.

  • Road-tested lessons from a stellar national writing lab
  • Inventive and unique lessons that will appeal to even the most difficult-to-reach students
  • Includes a chart linking lessons to the Common Core State Standards
