Part of the Corwin Literacy series

Paperback / softback


"This book is an instructive call to action for all of us who need to be reminded of what hope enacted as classroom practice can look like." -Cornelius MinorEvery classroom is shaped by the skills, languages, social and cultural identities, perspectives, and passions of the children within it.

When you approach writing instruction with a deep understanding of children in your classroom, everything else-assessment, planning, differentiated instruction, mentor and shared texts-begins to fall into place. And you can teach writing with inclusion, equity, and agency at the forefront. Authors Melanie Meehan and Kelsey Sorum show you how to adapt curriculum to meet the needs of the whole child.

Each chapter offers intentional steps for responsive instruction across four domains: academic, linguistic, cultural, and social-emotional.

Features include:Inspiration, classroom examples, and scaffolded tips for creating individualized resourcesCustomizable information-gathering and planning tools, classroom charts, and writing samplesSpace for making notes and working through ideasLinks to online content, including printable templates
