Synopsis: How can we help students - all students - write effectively?
Writing for Understanding provides a practical, proven approach to teaching writing that targets insufficient student understanding of content information and of the writer's craft as key reasons for poor quality student writing. Through Writing for Understanding, teachers learn to help students:
1) Build and process working content knowledge and understanding of the writer's craft
2) Identify a central idea for their writing, then focus it through a question, and
3) Transfer their developing writing abilities independently to new situations.
With models of effective teaching, samples of student writing, and practical tools for classroom use, Writing for Understanding offers an inspiring and useful tool for developing effective, independent student writers.
