Empowering striving writers to thrive as writers!

Somehow, in every classroom during every year, there are students who keep us up at night because of the instructional challenges they face as writers. These students—our striving writers—may find success exploring different entry points and pathways than those their classmates travel. 

Every Child Can Write will help you lead striving writers along their journey toward growth, confidence, and success.  Filled with practical strategies, classroom-management ideas,and reproducible tools, this book also offers low- and high-tech solutions for increasing writing volume and boosting self-esteem. 

Plus, with suggestions for differentiating instruction based on standards and student needs, it will help you:

  • Implement principles of UDL to optimize your classroom environment and student learning;
  • Identify and honor students’ strengths throughout your writing instruction;
  • Maximize the power of formative assessment to set goals with students
  • Integrate the most appropriate technology that empowers students and leads them to independence

As essential as writing is in elementary school, it will be even more important when your students reach middle school. Now is the time to give them the skills, practice, and confidence they need to succeed.
