Inspiring Student Writers: Strategies and Examples for Teachers
IAP, 2009 - Education - 189 pages
A volume in Literacy, Language, and Learning Series Editor Patricia Ruggiano Schmidt, Le Moyne College Okay, wait a minute. Does that title mean students need to be inspired . . . or they can be inspiring writers? How about both. Getting our students to write and write well is a process Tom Scheft explains and explores- offering practical and theoretical guidance, while providing uplifting, thought provoking examples of a writing assignment for students middle grades through master's level. An invaluable supplemental text for teacher education programs and in-service programs, Scheft mines his experience working with student writers in public schools and universities. He also covers the research-backed case for autobiographical, reflective writing, helping student writers understand and deal with rejection, and honest, practical strategies for dealing with dialect differences. Professors, English teachers, and students: This book will help enhance writing through time-tested, user-friendly strategies and powerful examples."
