Ask successful writers and they'll tell you, the key to writing well is revision. Ask elementary school teachers and they'll tell you, the real challenge of writing instruction is teaching kids how to revise. Ruth Culham is both a successful writer and a writing teacher, and she's discovered how to teach writing and revision in a way that's accessible to both teacher and students: First read the writing, assess it using the traits of writing, then teach the writers and guide revision decisions using traits as a common language and map. This book shows you how to assess and teach writing in a way that's practical and doable--and best of all, see results. Part 1 walks you through the traits of writing and their key qualities, showing step by step how to read students' writing and offer feedback that nudges them forward through the revision process. Chapters will help you address challenges students face within each mode of writing (narrative, expository, persuasive), and provide tools young writers can use to evaluate their own writing and make revision decisions accordingly. Part 2 dives into instruction, offering specific guidance for how to use what you've learned from reading student writing to design lessons that scaffold students toward making their own craft decisions and revisions. In addition, there's an entire chapter devoted to mentor texts that you can use to model traits and key qualities for your students.

This book is a history composed of histories. Its particular focus is the way in which computers entered and changed the field of composition studies, a field that defines itself both as a research community and as a community of teachers. This may have a somewhat sinister suggestion that technology alone has agency, but this history (made of histories) is not principally about computers. It is about people-the teachers and scholars who have adapted the computer to their personal and professional purposes. From the authors' perspectives, change in technology drives changes in the ways we live and work, and we, agents to a degree in control of our own lives, use technology to achieve our human purposes. REVIEW: . . . This book reminds those of us now using computers to teach writing where we have been, and it brings those who are just entering the field up to date. More important, it will inform administrators, curriculum specialists, and others responsible for implementing the future uses of technology in writing instruction. - Computers and Composition

Improving Writing and Thinking through Assessment is designed to help individual faculty and administrators select assessment approaches and measures to maximize their students’ writing and thinking. The book offers useful guidance, through presentation of recommended assessment guidelines and measurement principles in Part 1 and applications from a variety of contributors in Part 2. It addresses a wide range of audiences, including instructors who want to assess and thus foster writing and thinking in their courses, administrators and instructors planning to assess writing and thinking at the program or institutional level, and graduate students interested in improving students’ writing and critical thinking. This book is more guide than a “cookbook.” By providing comprehensive standards and criteria that help individuals or teams develop plans and measures to improve writing and thinking, the book should be helpful for academic and Student Affairs administrators and faculty as the principles apply equally to all engaged in assessment. Contributors, representing a wide range of educators, illustrate many of the approaches and methods described in the theoretical section of the book using a variety of assessment strategies at both classroom and program levels. Readers will see how different types of institutions, both private and public as well as undergraduate and graduate, have designed assessment strategies and plans to gauge and enhance writing and thinking growth in the classroom and across programs. They candidly describe challenges encountered and solutions they adopted or suggest. These chapters reflect approaches and perspectives from various discourse communities – including writing program administrators, composition faculty, assessment professionals, and individual faculty representing several disciplines. The author argues the urgent need to develop strong writers and thinkers. She discusses challenges and obstacles, but underscores the necessity for more faculty involvement and institutional commitment. This book will help institutions and individual faculty design and implement sound, meaningful assessment strategies to foster effective writing and thinking that will both advance the goals of the institutional mission and meet faculty’s disciplinary objectives and scholarly concerns.

From the Back Cover: Expecting the unexpected is a collection of twenty-four articles written since the publication of the author's highly acclaimed Learning by Teaching. Divided into four parts-Listening to the Page, Learning by Sharing, Exploring Form, and Sitting to Write-the book includes both previously published and unpublished pieces that present a record of personal explorations into the process of writing and teaching writing. Included in the unpublished pieces are excerpts from handouts written for students, case histories of the author's own writing, and a running commentary that puts the reading in context. Inspirational and honest, Expecting the Unexpected is a celebration of surprise; it is one writer/teacher's account of how to expect the unexpected and how, even, to encourage, nurture, and make use of it.

A breakthrough in teaching the language arts, this new text integrates essential elements of phonics instruction with critical principles of literature-based instruction, and an emphasis on the arts resulting in a refreshing and balanced approach to language arts. Ron Cramer has been selected by The International Reading Association for the 2004 Outstanding Teacher Educator in Reading. Written with the belief that all children and teachers possess creative potential, respected author, Ron Cramer masterfully integrates phonics instruction with critical principles of literature-based instruction, namely literature, comprehension, writing, and oral language. Created especially for those students who want hands-on practical applications to take into the classroom, this text will be a “keeper” as it includes more activities than any other text that culminate in a compendium of activities—The Blue Pages—at the end of the book. In sum, Cramer's engaging writing style leaves readers feeling as though they “are in conversation with the author” and clearly answers the question, “How can we teach Language Arts well?” Lastly, this text adds new dimension by providing an important but often neglected emphasis on the arts.
