ILA Resource Collection: Instructional Strategies for Today’s Writers, Ages 12+


How do you create 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.
