From the Publisher:

An expanded, reorganized edition of this excellent text for writing methods courses...one that advocates a process approach to writing, focusing on strategies that will help children in Grades K-8 use the writing process to develop and improve their writing skills while they improve their writing products. The text now begins with an introductory chapter that provides an overview of the five cyclical, recursive stages of the writing process-- prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and sharing--along with practical instructional tips and techniques for each stage. Individual chapters then examine all major types of writing...through a practical, straightforward presentation which includes a wealth of children's actual writing samples that really help to bring the "writing process" to life.

From the Back Cover:

With a sharpened focus on differentiating writing instruction and new coverage of technology use in the classroom, the sixth edition of Teaching Writing: Balancing Process and Product offers a comprehensive vision of the processes children use when they write as well as the quality of their compositions.

Book Description Pearson, 2011. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: One of the primary strengths of the Tompkins text is that the full range of genres taught in K-8 settings is represented, giving novice teachers an idea of the many kinds of writing they can use to strengthen their students' content literacy. My beginning teachers love this text! Nikola Hobbel, Humboldt State University There is much good, practical advice here for teachers very accurate and on-target, lots of good assessment tools. If only my teachers had taught me poetry with this book! Mayra Daniel, Northern Illinois University This is an excellent book. This edition is a significant improvement that has not lost any of the original efficacy. The balance, level headedness combined with "just enough" research support are excellent. Guy Tranin, University of Nebraska, Lincoln The examples are appropriate and lively each example thoroughly explains the concept further for the reader. The rubrics and checklists for writing are great. Karla Broadus, University of Texas, San Antonio The use of the classroom as a basis for examples is helpful and the figures used to illustrate bring the information together. All of the step by step sections help to bring the content of the text into practice. Varied grade levels represented throughout help to make this text effective for teacher candidates who are contemplating teaching at different levels. Gail Brown, Randolph College.
