The expanded Third Edition allows you to: simplify the planning process for writing with several graphic organizers; help students use and retain vivid vocabulary with entertaining, classroom-proven activities; encourage and explicitly teach strategies that foster well-organized and elaborated writing that reveals the writer’s voice; teach students how to recognize genre―a difficult skill for many students to master on assessments―with twenty passages from familiar and beloved children’s fiction and non-fiction literature; provide students with practice in all genres with more than 200 practice prompts, plus the newest test addition―quote analysis; assess writing quickly and confidently using the ninety reproducible, student-written responses to descriptive, expository, narrative, and persuasive writing prompts that include rubrics and teacher notes; and conform to your state’s scoring system using either holistic or domain scoring (explanations provided with the student samples).

About the Author:

Jane Kiester is the author of the popular Caught'ya books: Caught'ya! Grammar with a Giggle; Caught'ya Again! More Grammar with a Giggle; The Chortling Bard! Grammar with a Giggle for High School; Giggles in the Middle: Caught'ya! Grammar with a Giggle for Middle School; Eggbert, the Ball, Bounces by Himself: Caught'ya! Grammar with a Giggle for First Grade; Putrescent Petra Finds Friends: Caught'ya! Grammar with a Giggle for Second Grade; and Juan and Marie Join the Class: Caught'ya! Grammar with a Giggle for Third Grade (these last three were formerly Elementary, My Dear! Caught'ya! Grammar with a Giggle for Grades 1, 2, and 3), all published by Maupin House. Teachers all over the country also use the new edition of her third book, Blowing Away the State Writing Assessment Test, to help improve their students' scores on state writing assessment tests. Jane's most recent book is Teach Spelling So It Sticks. She is currently writing three new books. In addition to writing books, Jane has given hundreds of workshops to fellow teachers around the country for the past ten years. Her subject? The same as in her classroom, where she happily taught elementary or middle school for more than 30 years -- teaching students to write well. In her three decades as a classroom teacher, Jane has served many years as various department chairpersons and grade-level chairperson. She is also a past president of the Alachua County Teachers of English. Jane has been recognized three times by "Who's Who Among America's Teachers." In 2002 she won Teacher of the Year for her school and Middle School Teacher of the Year for her county. Problem-solving Workshops for Teachers Jane's energy is contagious! Her workshops, seminars and invited presentations delight and rejuvenate teachers at all grade levels. Jane delivers practical, classroom-proven ideas to solve those yucky "must-do" situations all teachers face. Each presentation sparkles with Jane's insightful humor. Her seminars and symposium speaking topics are shaped to fit the specific needs of schools and districts.

Review:

"Don't leave your students' scores on state writing assessment tests to chance... Here's four classroom-proven steps to better scores for all levels." --Better Teaching newsletter
