"Chapman and King make the teaching of writing transparent and accessible to practitioners, who can then develop coherent, engaging, and developmentally appropriate lessons to ensure that all (not some) students are writers! This book will be a useful tool to teacher mentors, staff developers, principals, and teacher leaders working with beginning staff. It will be a useful guide to learning communities that are looking for strategies to build competency in targeted skill areas.
"A ready classroom reference for every teacher. The book is a blend of delightful humor, current research, and best practice that entices both the learner to reach for excellence as an empowered writer and the teacher to impart the knowledge and skills of the craft."
"Filled with easy-to-implement ideas, clearly explained. This book helps teachers differentiate with confidence. I absolutely recommend it to ALL teachers."
"Chapman and King have done it again. The new edition has so many new activities and strategies for teachers to help students become motivated to write and become better writers! These authors truly understand learners and working with different learners and their varying needs in writing. Their ideas are easy to use and they produce results!"
"It is refreshing to see the content so thoroughly covered with both theory and practical applications. Chapman and King do a wonderful job of showing how a teacher can differentiate all aspects of the writing process so that students can become authors. They also show how every teacher can be a teacher of writing! The book is not only easy to read, but the activities are easy to implement in any discipline."
"A phenomenal tool for any teacher of writing. The layout makes it extremely easy to follow, and the content covers just about anything a teacher would need to know in order to design a classroom for students of any age who are becoming authors. It is a gift to first-year teachers and veterans alike."
