The Writing Teacher's Activity-a-Day
The Writing Teacher's Activity-a-Day offers 180+ ready-to-use, reproducible activities that are designed to enhance writing skills of all secondary students. Written for grades 6-12, the book's classroom-tested activities are designed so that teachers aren't required to do any extra grading. Partnering techniques along with new oral assessments and peer-editing strategies not only reduce teacher paper load but provide immediate feedback for students. It is filled with writing prompts and sample passages written in student-friendly language that connect abstract literary concepts to students' own lives. In addition, the engaging examples serve as models to encourage students to create their own Quick Writes.
"The most difficult area to teach in language arts is writing, and this text now makes it easier—it will become a teacher's best friend! The book is the perfect marriage to the writer's workshop lesson plan model, giving specific examples of writing for each necessary skill to be taught, and will surely enhance and support your mini-lessons. Implementing these activities will help both the student and teacher grow as writers. In 33 years of teaching language arts, I've never seen anything like it!"
