Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Judy Davis and Sharon Hill have distilled several decades worth of teaching experience into this invaluable road map to creating a writing workshop in which students grow and grow and grow as writers.”–Carl Anderson

“Here is a book written by expert teachers who have lived the teaching of writing from inside the classroom. This is a book that wisely connects writing with reading, life, parents, the school, and community. Judy Davis and Sharon Hill show us the practicalities of helping children become lifetime writers today.”–Donald Graves

“This excellent book is as brilliant as it is pragmatic. Every teacher will want to dog-ear and highlight the myriad of tips and strategies that fill every page.”–Georgia Heard

“In the hurry of teaching, how reassuring to be able to reach out for indispensable, ready-to-go aid and comfort. This book is filled with concrete answers to the questions, "What do I teach and how should I teach it?"”–Lucy Calkins

“What a treat - everything we always wanted to know about teaching writing packed into this extraordinary book. So chock full of thoughtful strategies and practical ideas that my pencil jumped into overdrive marking spots I will return to again and again. This book is destined to become a familiar friend to us all.”–Stephanie Harvey
