Editorial Reviews

Marilee Sprenger
"I think the content in this book is excellent and it makes a great contribution. As a writing teacher for twenty-some years, I wish I’d had access to this material...This is important and seminal work that is needed for differentiating writing for students with strong learning preferences."
Erin Sullivan
"True to one of the basic tenets of writing, the book shows rather than tells...The author consistently conveys ideas through metaphor, symbolism and simile, without extraneous words or overly elaborate imagery. This makes for a fun and engaging read."
Carol Ann Tomlinson
"The book helps teachers see how to approach writing in ways that make it fresh, relevant, and accessible. It is substantive and not a twinky 'feel good' book. ...it will be useful to teachers who work diligently to help students become more competent and confident writers."
Pamela Fannin Wilkinson
"The book makes a distinct contribution to the teaching of writing; I am not aware of any other book that addresses the issues so comprehensively."
