From the Publisher
One of the primary strengths of the Tompkins text is that the full range of genres taught in K-8 settings is represented, giving novice teachers an idea of the many kinds of writing they can use to strengthen their students’ content literacy. My beginning teachers love this text!
Nikola Hobbel, Humboldt State University
There is much good, practical advice here for teachers — very accurate and on-target, lots of good assessment tools. If only my teachers had taught me poetry with this book!
Mayra Daniel, Northern Illinois University
This is an excellent book. This edition is a significant improvement that has not lost any of the original efficacy. The balance, level headedness combined with “just enough” research support are excellent.
Guy Tranin, University of Nebraska, Lincoln
The examples are appropriate and lively — each example thoroughly explains the concept further for the reader. The rubrics and checklists for writing are great.
Karla Broadus, University of Texas, San Antonio
The use of the classroom as a basis for examples is helpful and the figures used to illustrate bring the information together. All of the step by step sections help to bring the content of the text into practice. Varied grade levels represented throughout help to make this text effective for teacher candidates who are contemplating teaching at different levels.
