  • generate and organize ideas before writing, and then turn their prewriting ideas into connected text
  • develop writing style by focusing on word choice, voice, and fluency
  • gradually build skills of conventional spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and grammar

“I have a new favourite book and now I can’t wait to teach writing this year!  This is at least the 5th book I have purchased about  Writing within the last few years and this is absolutely the best one yet! I have been doing a writing workshop for several years but after reading this book, I realize that I can do so much more. This would be an EXCELLENT book for anyone who has struggled with teaching writing as well as for the new teacher that has no idea where to start.” – Sue, Teacher Listserv
