Since its publication in 1998 Craft Lessons has become a mainstay of writing teachers, both new and experienced. Readers value the pithy, practical lessons—each printed on one page—and appreciate the instructional language geared to three grade-level groupings: K–2, 3–4, and 5–8. In the decade since Craft Lessons' publication the world has changed in many ways, yet one thing has remained constant: teachers continue to feel starved for time. With new curriculum mandates, daily specials, “pull-outs,” and precious time devoted to test preparation, the situation has never been worse, and the need for a succinct resource like Craft Lessons has never been greater. The features that made Craft Lessons so valuable have been augmented. This edition includes: Seventeen brand new craft lessons; many based on veteran teachers' observations about typical student writing. Revisions to other craft lessons: model texts that have gone out of print have been replaced with current titles, and the resource materials sections have been expanded. New thinking about teaching elements of craft and the reading-writing connection. Two new indexes: a handy subject index to make it easier to find specific craft lessons, and an index that shows how these craft lessons can be integrated into Ralph and JoAnn's curriculum resource on the “qualities of writing”—Ideas, Design, Language, and Presentation. The 95 lessons in this book provide a wealth of information for teaching leads, character, endings, stronger verbs, and much more. This new edition reestablishes Craft Lessons as the crucial “desert island book” for harried writing teachers everywhere.

The Write Direction is an innovative book that guides teachers on how to teach writing, including the connection to the writing students will encounter once they leave school. The book examines the importance of teacher as writer, classroom environment, writing process, and six traits of writing and how teachers can implement these concepts. The Write Direction connects classroom writing instruction to the world students will face once they leave school and enter the workplace. The authors believe that students need to explore and practice writing assignments that better prepare them for the writing they will undertake once they leave school. Unfortunately, many teachers do not know what types of writing employers in the business world expect their employees to be able to produce. Therefore, every chapter provides specific activities for teachers to undertake as they work to improve their writing instruction. Suggestions for incorporating appropriate writing assignments that connect to workplace writing are also included. The book also provides suggestions for managing the crucial issues facing new teachers in today's classroom: testing, grading, and long-range planning.

Adolescents have robust and rewarding writing lives outside of school that involve journals, emails, text messages, blogs, and an astounding array of genres. Unlike their personal reading lives that teachers frequently tap into, their personal writings typically exist under the curricular radar--that is until now. While grounded in the common schedule constraints and curriculum demands of middle school, Laura Robb's Teaching Middle School Writers offers teachers lessons and routines that are uncommonly attuned to adolescents' developmental and social needs. As she taps into the energy and enthusiasm of adolescents' personal writing lives, Laura presents: writing plans that support first drafts; strategies for crafting leads that grab and endings that satisfy; grammar lessons that address writing conventions; editing lessons that have students revise their writing before the teacher reads it; guidelines for grading and responding to student work. Straight-from-the-classroom writing samples and videos give teachers the opportunity to see how Laura uses compelling questions and powerful mentor texts to teach writing, support struggling writers, and weave twenty-first century literacies into the writing curriculum. Throughout, teachers learn ways of connecting to students' lives in order to bring out their best writing, their best self. --Publisher's description.
