Through strategic routines, tips, advice, and resources, as well as short, focused video clips, new and veteran teachers can create the sights and sounds of a thriving writing workshop in their K–6 classrooms where:

  • Both students and teachers are working authors

  • Students spend most of their time writing—not just learning about it

  • Student choice is encouraged to help create engaged writers, not compliant ones

  • Students are part of the formative assessment process, managing their own development

  • Students will look forward to writing time—not dread it

Detailing everything from explanations of the writing process and writing traits to small-group strategy lessons and minilessons about craft moves, this comprehensive book will provide the know-how to feel confident and comfortable in the teaching of writers. It’s an ideal complement to any writing program, including Stacey and Lynne's upcoming program from Zaner-Bloser, Jump into Writing.
