How do we teach elementary students to independently use the different elements of craft that are discussed and taught in lessons? We begin by honoring the reality that terms like voice, sentence fluency, and writing with detail are descriptions of where we want our students to be, not next steps on how to reach those goals. In Crafting Writers, K–6 Elizabeth Hale shows us how to identify specific elements of craft when assessing student work and planning instruction, and use them to teach students the specific craft techniques that will move them forward as writers. Liz offers practical information that teachers can use immediately in their classrooms. She also presents a concrete process for noticing craft in writing so teachers can develop and plan craft lessons based on their students' writing. Learning the techniques that make up good writing also allows teachers to see craft in many different levels of writing, a skill that is particularly powerful when conferring with below-grade-level writers. Additional chapters look closely at assessment and classroom management practices like group conferring. Most of us know good writing when we read it, but writing teachers need to know what makes it work. Filled with easy-to-use charts, and practical lessons, Crafting Writers, K–6 provides clear insight into identifying and teaching the small elements that make good writing successful.

This text draws on interviews, assignments, field notes, and observations from a flipped writing methodology course conducted with preservice elementary teachers in the US. In doing so, the text powerfully illustrates the benefits of using flipped methodologies in K-6 instruction to engage students, teachers, and families in authentic writing practices. Engaging Teachers, Students, and Families in K-6 Writing Instruction demonstrates the use of flipped writing methodologies to engage preservice teachers in literacy instruction, increase their confidence as writers, and bolster their understanding and application of pedagogical content knowledge. In turn, this underpins teachers’ ability to teach writing as an authentic, purpose-driven, audience-focused process. In particular, chapters explore effective teaching strategies including writing clinics, writing contests, and family literacy sessions which encourage writing development within a community of students, teachers, families, and authors. This text will be an engaging and informative guide for educational researchers, teacher educators, and preservice and inservice teachers looking to develop effective flipped writing pedagogies to support educators, students, and families.

Since comparison papers require students to describe both similarities and differences, they are often used as assessment tools in just about every subject. For this reason alone, developing writers should be taught how to craft effective comparison papers. But teaching your students how to compose comparison papers also has a larger impact on their education--it prepares them to think more analytically, perform better in complex testing situations, and compare texts. In Crafting Comparison Papers, Marcia S. Freeman fully explains the four instructional steps that develop comparison skills: understanding the concept of attributes; organizing attributes for comparison; building clear, coherent comparative paragraphs; and assembling effective comparison papers. She includes lessons with specific Target Skills(TM) to support your students' progress, and she suggests timelines that will help you plan your curriculum. Throughout, Freeman's comprehensive approach and clear instructions make this book a unique and valuable resource for any teacher of developing writers.

It's been a decade since Lynne Dorfman and Rose Cappelli wrote the first edition of Mentor Texts and helped teachers across the country make the most of high-quality children's literature in their writing instruction. In the second edition of this important book Lynne and Rose show teachers how to help students become confident, accomplished writers by using literature as their foundation. The second edition includes brand-new "Your Turn Lessons," built around the gradual release of responsibility model, offering suggestions for demonstrations and shared or guided writing. Reflection is emphasized as a necessary component to understanding why mentor authors chose certain strategies, literary devices, sentence structures, and words. Lynne and Rose offer new children's book titles in each chapter and in a carefully curated and annotated Treasure Chest. At the end of each chapter a "Think About It--Talk About It--Write About It" section invites reflection and conversation with colleagues. The book is organized around the characteristics of good writing--focus, content, organization, style, and conventions. Rose and Lynne write in a friendly and conversational style, employing numerous anecdotes to help teachers visualize the process, and offer strategies that can be immediately implemented in the classroom. This practical resource demonstrates the power of learning to read like writers.

This comprehensive handbook shows teachers how to build a foundation for writing with effective lessons that are the key to powerful writing workshops. Writing Anchors demonstrates how to create a supportive classroom, model writing experiences, and create enthusiasm for writing among students. The practical lessons explore the major elements of writing, with explicit strategies for teaching the major forms of writing: Informational writing—detailed descriptions of ways to take and organize notes, use text features, and create reports that have voice; Poetry and personal writing— language choice, imagery, using the senses, and finding the personal pulse of the writer; Narrative—extends writing skills with lessons on story sequence, problem solving, and character development. The lessons form "metacognitive anchors" that build an understanding of the elements of powerful writing. Each lesson comes with an anchor cue card that prompts students to apply their growing understandings independently in writing workshops and in assessing their own writing. In addition, the book provides more than thirty effective tools that are ready to copy and use in the classroom—writing checklists, rubrics for assessment, graphic organizers, note-taking grids, semantic maps, story maps, tips for proofing, and student examples collected from grade 2–7 classrooms.
