We have a writing crisis on our hands. National results reveal that only about a quarter of 8th and 12th grade students in the United States have reached grade-level proficiency. Their scores reveal that far too many students aren't ready for college or prepared to meet the writing demands of the 21st century workplace.

Students struggle with writing for the simple reason that it is remarkably complex. Writing is a lengthy process; demands intense concentration; and requires attention to countless rules, conventions, and traits. In short, the patience and dedication necessary can be overwhelming.

The strategies and tools presented in this book target struggling writers in grades 3-8 (in any classroom around the world) and teachers with limited time. Campos and Fad describe eight traits that lead to writing success: focus, coherence, organization, development of ideas, voice, word choice, conventions, and presentation. With a solid understanding of these traits, students are firmly positioned on the road to mastery. The following materials are included (and available as printable downloads):

* Writing prompts
* Evaluation protocols
* Reflection forms
* 30 step-by-step writing strategies
* Reproducible worksheets and graphic organizers
* Differentiated strategies for ELLs and struggling readers
* Progress monitoring forms
* Parent resources

This book will help teachers teach writing to students with diverse learning styles, and the powerful tools presented are aligned with national standards and can be used immediately in lesson planning.

About the Author:

David Campos began his career in education over 20 years ago when he started teaching 2nd grade. He later entered graduate school, taught ESL, and worked in corporate training and development. He earned his Ph.D. from The University of Texas at Austin, specializing in learning disabilities and behavior disorders. His first job in academia was at Roosevelt University (Chicago) where he was an assistant professor in the College of Education. After earning rank and tenure, he became Associate Professor of Education at the University of the Incarnate Word, where he has supervised student teachers and taught undergraduate and graduate courses in special education, multicultural education, and instructional design and delivery.

David has written books focused on English language learners, childhood obesity, and gay and lesbian youth. He was guest editor of a special issue of the Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, which focused on language acquisition as it relates to Latino students. His peer-reviewed articles focus on constructivist teaching and authentic assessment by way of African American visionaries. David spends his time between San Antonio, Austin, and his parents lake home outside of Marble Fall, Texas.
