Teaching Beginning Writers, Paperback / softback Book


An essential "how-to" primer, this book examines the process of learning to write and shares evidence-based instructional strategies for the primary grades.

With an emphasis on explicit instruction and scaffolding students' learning, the authors explain when and how to teach handwriting, spelling, foundational skills such as sentence formation and editing, and composition in specific genres.

They present clear-cut techniques for assessment, differentiation, and supporting struggling writers.

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Writing are used as a framework for setting instructional goals.

Reproducible assessment forms, checklists, and rubrics are provided; purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.
