How do you support foundational writing skills while also fostering an environment where writing is seen as a process, as a way to promote critical thinking, and as an art as much as a skill?
The Instructional Strategies for Today’s Writers collections tackle that question while focusing on age-appropriate topics ranging from emergent writing to amplifying voices, think-alouds to the revision process, and teacher feedback to real-world writing experiences. You’ll gain a blueprint for establishing a classroom that grows writers toward independent thought and creativity—and encourages them to write, to think, and to critically view the future.
All of the products listed below are included in the collection price.
