About the Author:

Heather Wolpert-Gawron is an award-winning middle school teacher and a popular blogger through Tweenteacher.com and Edutopia.org. Her first book, ’Tween Crayons and Curfews: Tips for Middle School Teachers¸ was published by Eye On Education in 2011.

Review:

"Heather Wolpert-Gawron offers teachers across the curriculum techniques for making writing a natural product of student learning. Let her show you how to move from assigning and assessing writing to using writing as a tool to deepen students' comprehension. Writing Behind Every Door presents an argument impossible to argue against."

--Carol Jago, long-time English teacher in Santa Monica, California and past president of the National Council of Teachers of English

"Wow, I feel like a better writer and thinker, let alone teacher, when reading Writing Behind Every Door. Appropriate for teaching 4th grade through high school (and beyond), this will be the book I give to all subject teachers looking for compelling blueprints, practical strategies, and extensive resources for making writing the powerful teaching tool it is."

--Rick Wormeli, education consultant, thought-leader, and bestselling author of books on instruction and assessment

"Heather not only offers fellow English language arts teachers a rich array of strategies and lessons for preparing their students to become college and career ready, but she reaches out to content area teachers with discipline-specific activities so that writing will truly be going on behind every classroom door. She has definitely provided teachers with innovative ways to meet and exceed the Common Core!"

--Carol Booth Olson, Associate Professor at the University of California at Irvine and Director of the UC Irvine Writing Project

 "I made notes all the way through. The book was relevant to my work as an ELA teacher and as an instructional coach in all subject areas. Even the title provides multiple delightful meanings–not only is writing a subject that all teachers should use “behind their own classroom doors,” but it is also something that can be scary like a movie monster hiding behind a creaky door.

If you read this book you may actually learn to enjoy the creaky opening of that potentially scary door that is writing instruction, and you will be able to peer happily around the solid barrier. You and your students will benefit from being able to travel with ease through various content area doorways."

--Kathleen Pham, Middleweb
