Overview

This is a writing text based on how real writers write, treating writing and revising as essentially the same thing. The book focuses on the choices writers make as they find and shape their meanings from an initial idea in their journals or freewriting, through drafting and receiving responses from peers and teachers, to the final publishable form.

Writers Writing

  • includes a chapter on journals that shows not only how writers have used their initial tentative observations and perceptions in their work but also how they have used their journals to chart their writing processes;
  • demonstrates how students can become better readers of their own texts;
  • shows how peer writing groups can help a writer generate ideas and revise a text;
  • shows students how to use teacher' comments in revising their texts;
  • illustrates the choices that writers make in re-envisioning their work;
  • gives strategies for getting started and trying out different ways of saying something.
