Learning to Write with Purpose : Effective Instruction in Grades 4-8 Paperback
Part of the Solving Problems in the Teaching of Literacy series
Communicating ideas and information is what makes writing meaningful-yet many upper elementary and middle school students write in a vacuum, without considering the aims of their writing or the needs of their readers.
This highly informative, teacher-friendly book presents a fresh perspective on writing instruction along with practical methods for the classroom.
Teachers learn ways to promote the skills and strategies needed to write and revise effectively in a range of genres: personal narratives, fiction, and poetry; persuasive, explanatory, and ""how-to"" writing; and writing for high-stakes tests.
Special features include vivid classroom vignettes, examples of student work, evaluation guidelines, and suggested ""mentor texts"" that model different genres.
