Comprehensive, innovative, and practical, this text offers educators a powerful approach to teaching writing. Rather than have students perform repetitive exercises, it focuses on engaging students in grappling with words and experiences to make meaning. Such topics as the paradigm shift from product to process; an overview of the writing process; teaching prewriting and how to shape writing; examining genres; collaborative learning; classroom management strategies; grammar within the writing process; proofreading, editing, and publishing; cognitive developmental theory; developmental writing and spelling; brain theory; research; assessment and grading; the reading/writing connection; and writing across the curriculum are covered. Grades K-12.
