Strategies for helping kids find writing topics they are passionate about and expand self-selected topics into longer writing.
Struggling writers need personalized, focused, and assessment-informed instruction and, to this end, Angelillo shows teachers how to provide their students with three levels of support: 1) self-monitoring strategies that enable students to start writing, build writing stamina, manage their time, and stay focused on a topic; 2) classroom community resources which create a safe, supportive environment in which to write; and 3) best practices drawn from writer's workshop including student choice in writing topics, discovering one's voice as a writer, and time out to conference, reflect, and assess.
