The Writing Teacher's Activity-a-Day
The Writing Teacher's Activity-a-Day offers 180+ ready-to-use, reproducible activities that will enhance writing skills of all secondary students. Written for teachers in 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. The book is filled with writing prompts and sample passages written in student-friendly language that connect abstract literary and grammatical concepts to students' own lives. In addition, the engaging examples serve as models to encourage students to create their own Quick Writes or essays that will serve as an entire lesson.
