This is a great book to explore teaching reading and writing. Nancie has great ideas and the book is easy to read. It is more for secondary classrooms.
Nancy Atwell helped make a non-traditional classroom acceptable. Happily, the concept of the writing workshop is now becoming more the norm. You can't miss with this book or with any of Atwell's books. She is an inspiration to teachers who truly love their students and want them to learn. Warning: Atwell's books are NOT about how to pass standardized tests or boost scores. Her emphasis is totally focused on real education.
For three years now, I have used this book (and the first edition) in teaching my writing classes. Parents and other teachers are astounded and incredibly impressed at the volume and quality of the writing my students turn out during their year with me. This book made it so easy for me to make the switch to writing workshop. Information on how to get started, and what to do at every phase of the workshop, is so detailed and practical that any teacher could read it and turn out amazing young authors. Every writing teacher needs this book.
In the Middle completely changed the way I teach high school English. My students have read and written more this year than in all my years of teaching combined. Nancie Atwell is a genius in the field of workshopping!! This book is written for teachers, by a teacher.
