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.
