This book is intended for middle and high school teachers who are committed to the process-writing model and are eager to encourage their students in the last step of the process--publication. The book offers specific writing ideas and classroom activities that help students develop the confidence and ability to publish in a wide market, and it features an extensive list of commercial markets and writing contests open to young writers. The book also addresses the issue of evaluation and guides teachers in turning their classrooms into writing communities whose members work together to recognize and reward each writer. This book can serve as a handy reference guide to publishing opportunities for students (a comprehensive appendix lists nearly 150 publishing opportunities for young writers) and as a useful collection of writing ideas that teachers can use within their established English/language arts curriculum. Appendixes include: a comprehensive 150-item list of publishing opportunities--the Market and Control lists; electronic submissions; resources of technical advice for young writers; and sample formats for cover letters and manuscripts.
