    Excellent Ideas for Teaching Writing

    As a student teacher I found that teaching writing was very difficult. I turned to this text and one from Atwell to help me teach writing to my students. This book helped me tremendously. The mini-lessons are well thought out and give the teacher the techniques to model the lesson in a manner that creates student achievement. I found this to be the best resource available to teach writing. The lessons in this book helped my students organize their writing and elaborate more effectively. The techniques in this book really helped me add meat to the writing of my students.
