Helping young writers improve means providing just-right assistance to a whole class of students, each at their own level. Add English learners to the traditional mix, and teachers need new, flexible ideas for meeting a larger and more diverse set of needs. In Writer to Writer you'll find a way to combine children's love of social networking with good teaching to ensure that your entire multilingual classroom makes progress in its journey toward fluent, independent writing.

Writer to Writer shows K - 6 teachers how to support writers effectively through partnerships and small groups. Mary Lee Prescott-Griffin (coauthor of the popular Fluency in Focus) presents writing partnerships and other co-composing methods as ways for students to practice the crucial skills and techniques every writer needs, including:
· brainstorming ideas and writing topics
· strategizing and planning
· conducting research
· revising
· editing and polishing for publication.

Additionally, in each chapter Prescott-Griffin provides classroom-ready applications of partner-based learning that help English language learners make a successful transition to a new written language. These ideas capitalize on children's social instincts and create a safe, structured environment for taking on writing tasks that new English speakers can't do alone. She also offers similar ideas for working with reluctant and special-needs writers, making her teaching framework useful for teaching the widest possible variety of writers.

With clear, explicit directions for implementing and supporting writing partnerships,; numerous collaborative models; “classroom snapshots” that illustrate collaboration in action; and all the charts, graphic organizers, checklists, editing and revising tools, and reproducible student materials you'll need to implement effective writing partnerships, Writer to Writer is a practical handbook that can meet a wide variety of instructional needs. Read it, fill it with bookmarks, dog ear its pages, and discover the power of partnerships for meeting the needs of every writer in your multilingual classroom.
