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.

 

New to this edition!

Chapter 3: The Writer’s Craft examines the six traits of writing before diving into instructional procedures for each.

 

Chapter 12: Writing Across the Curriculum This new chapter covers different types of writing as appropriate for an array of classroom needs, including writing about literature, writing as a tool for learning, and writing in the content areas.

 

Accommodating EL Writers sections in every chapter provide insight into the most successful methods for students learning English as they are also learning the craft of writing.

 

Digital Toolkit features provide concrete examples of different ways to employ technology in classroom writing instruction.

 

Mentor Texts features suggest books, broken down by appropriate grade level, ideal for modeling specific genre writing.

 

Checklist features list, at a glance, the elements a teacher needs to account for in pieces of student writing.

 

CD-ROM margin notes pinpoint classroom footage on the accompanying media Writing Workshop that best illustrates chapter concepts.
