Free Access to Online Text

Right the writing wrongs in your secondary classroom! In his new book Teaching Adolescent Writers, Kelly Gallagher shares instructional strategies that focus on key needs: ample practice, teacher modeling, reading great writers, topic choice...

This free online book preview will help you:

  • motivate young writers;

  • see the importance modeling plays in building young writers (modeling from both the teacher and from real-world text);

  • understand how providing choice elevates adolescent writing (and how to allow for choice within a rigorous curriculum);

  • help students recognize the importance of purpose and audience;

  • assess essays in ways that drive better writing performance.

  • I'm a big fan of free previews. Those of you looking for ideas about teaching writing should check this out.
