Teachers, administrators, and parents will discover in this book ways to make writing a genuine learning experience for students in grades K-8. Seven experienced and successful teachers describe their explorations in evolving a process approach to writing in their classrooms and in a school system. They recount their stories in personal and direct ways so that others can easily benefit from their practices. Each teacher deals forthrightly with the problems and frustrations of changing from more traditional ways of teaching writing and reveals the pleasure that can be gained from seeing students become more independent, thoughtful writers. The authors offer helpful ideas on correcting and advising students to help them improve their writing, and on handling the increased paper load that results from an active writing program.
