Overview

In their popular About the Authors, Katie Wood Ray and Lisa Cleaveland show that with thoughtful instruction, even the youngest students can create dazzling writing. Now with The Teaching Behind About the Authors, Katie is your guide on a tour of Lisa's writing workshop, where you'll come face to face with emerging writers and see for yourself how smart, organized, high-powered teaching helps ignite a passion for writing.

Katie presents insightful commentary as she tracks Lisa's instructional moves, interpreting the broad themes and the nuanced moments of Lisa's whole-class teaching and closing shares. Ray and Cleaveland show the predictable, unified ways of thinking and talking that help children develop important habits of mind over time.

Tied to the units of study contained in About the Authors and shot during real, unstaged school days - complete with the interruptions and typical classroom happenings that every teacher must navigate - The Teaching Behind About the Authors conveys what actually happens in active writing workshops. It offers a context for true professional learning with a model of excellent instruction, including the language you need for success with our youngest writers, and a helpful guide to support your viewing experience.

Meet the Author

Between her passion for elementary writing instruction and a love of children's literature, Katie Wood Ray found herself asking, "What if children were introduced to key qualities of good writing in the context of illustrations?" This question led to the research behind In Pictures and In Words. The answer was simple yet powerful: "The thinking students do while reading picture books can help them see the connection between what words and illustrations do to make meaning." As an author of bestselling Heinemann books such as Already Ready, Study Driven, About the Authors, and What You Know By Heart and as a member of Heinemann Professional Development Services, Katie has always given teachers resources and PD that transform writing instruction and help children discover a lifelong love of writing. A former Associate Professor at Western Carolina University Katie is now a full time writer and researcher of the teaching of writing. With a particular focus on the study of writing craft, she leads teacher workshops and summer institutes across the nation related to the teaching of writing. Her professional background includes both elementary and middle school teaching experience and two years as a staff developer at The Reading and Writing Project, Teachers College, Columbia University. She was also the coeditor of the journal Primary Voices K-6, a publication of the National Council of Teachers of English. Katie is also the author or coauthor of Spelling in Use: Looking Closely at Spelling in the Whole Language Classrooms (1996, NCTE), Wondrous Words: Writers and Writing in the Elementary Classroom (1999, NCTE), and The Writing Workshop: Working Through the Hard Parts (And Theyre All Hard Parts) (2001, NCTE). A frequent speaker at conferences and summer institutes around the country, Katie also has extensive experience teaching teachers in workshop and demonstration settings. Katie Wood Ray is a Heinemann Professional Development presenter. EC0410
