"These books will support teachers in their understanding of designing process-based instruction and give them both useful lesson plans and a process for designing instruction on their own that follows the design principles." -Peter Smagorinsky, Larry Johannessen, Elizabeth Kahn, and Thomas McCann The Dynamics of Writing Instruction series helps middle and high school teachers teach writing using a structured process approach. Teachers may spread these books throughout a multiyear English language arts program, use all six books to constitute a yearlong writing course, or repeat modified sequences from one book at sequential grade levels so students deal with that particular genre at increasing degrees of complexity. Each book in the series includes classroom-tested activities, detailed lesson sequences, and supporting handouts. The instruction is detailed enough to use as a daily plan but general enough that teachers can modify it to accommodate their own curriculum and the specific needs of their students. The instructional activities in each book are tailored to a specific kind of writing: argument, essays that define, comparison/contrast essays, personal narratives, research reports, and fictional narratives. This six book series will show teachers how to: introduce issues, dilemmas, and scenarios that capture students' interest and invoke the critical and creative thinking necessary to write powerfully and effectively design and orchestrate activities within an interactive and collaborative environment move students through increasingly challenging activities designed to help them become independent writers.

"This book will make the case for multiple, diverse kinds of analysis to be taught in the high school English classroom. In addition to showing what written analysis looks like "in the wild," the authors will provide readers with a framework of fundamental analytical skills for instruction. Importantly, Marchetti and O'Dell will advocate for framing analytical writing around students' (of all levels and abilities) passions and expertise. And just as they do in their previous Heinemann book, Writing with Mentors, they will share resources for bringing many different kinds of analytical writing into the classroom"--

Rather than overwhelming students with too many structures, constructions, and rules, the book's goal is simplification, showing teachers what the essential elements of grammar are that students need to learn to use to become better writers.

Student academic writing is at the heart of teaching and learning in higher education. Students are assessed largely by what they write, and need to learn both general academic conventions as well as disciplinary writing requirements in order to be successful in higher education. Teaching Academic Writing is a 'toolkit' designed to help higher education lecturers and tutors teach writing to their students. Containing a range of diverse teaching strategies, the book offers both practical activities to help students develop their writing abilities and guidelines to help lecturers and tutors think in more depth about the assessment tasks they set and the feedback they give to students. The authors explore a wide variety of text types, from essays and reflective diaries to research projects and laboratory reports. The book draws on recent research in the fields of academic literacy, second language learning, and linguistics. It is grounded in recent developments such as the increasing diversity of the student body, the use of the Internet, electronic tuition, and issues related to distance learning in an era of increasing globalisation. Written by experienced teachers of writing, language, and linguistics, Teaching Academic Writing will be of interest to anyone involved in teaching academic writing in higher education.

This exciting new writing resource offers a contemporary look at teaching writing strategies to 21st century students. The wealth of writing strategies are linked to research and theory and continually ask teachers to use problem solving and creative thinking to respond to the challenges of teaching writing in a global, computer-mediated society. The best practices offered in this book will make it easy for teachers to help their students flourish as creative and proficient writers. Two distinct characteristics make this resource unique. First, the author shares experiences in successful writing with students from a wide range of cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Second, the author emphasizes the use of technology to facilitate all stages of writing and to help students access, retrieve, interpret and apply information to enhance what they write. In the words of Linda Gambrell, former President of the International Reading Association, "this text is a pleasure to read and it is filled with valuable ideas for improving writing instruction. It will provide teachers, administrators, staff developers, and teacher educators with a very practical and powerful, research-based instructional model that will help to empower both teachers and their students."

This book should be of interest to all educators, both administrators and teachers. In the book, Randy provides practical strategies that employ writing as the tool for teaching students to both think and write well. Designed for teachers of all disciplines, in the book he clearly explains "what" to do and "why" these practices work, based on research. For educational leaders, the book provides "the big picture" view of how writing across the curriculum produces better thinkers, writers, and more literate students. For classroom teachers, Randy provides practical strategies that work. This book is divided into three sections. Section I delineates the reasons "why" writing must be used across the curricula to produce better thinkers, writers, and more literate students, and why these assets are essential for individual and societal success. Section II provides dozens of practical strategies that can be used by teachers of all disciplines to achieve the goal of producing good thinkers and writers. Additionally, Randy explains the research behind these strategies. Section III addresses the major problem that stands in the way of writing being used across the curricula as a tool for teaching: teachers not knowing how to provide quality feedback in efficient ways. The perceived "paper load" limits the writing opportunities for students and thus inhibits student growth. This section explains how to provide "quality" feedback "efficiently."

Writing ought to be the easiest of the four skills for students of English as a Second or Foreign Language. Unlike listening and reading, the students control all the words. Unlike speaking, the students can go back, check their work, revise it, and resubmit it. It should then follow that writing would be one of the most popular courses to teach. Yet teachers never say, “I can’t wait till I get tenure, so I can teach some of those composition classes of 35 students.” However, writing classes also offer the opportunity to see growth, to share important ideas, and to develop a sense of community. The tips in Fifty Ways Ways to Teach Writing are chosen with that goal in mind -- to make it easier for students to succeed at becoming better writers, and for instructors to enjoy the teaching of writing. This book is divided into three categories, which represent the stages of process writing: a) Pre-writing and planning b) Writing topics and strategies c) Editing and revising The Fifty Ways to Teach series gives you a variety of drills, games, techniques, methods, and ideas to help your students master English. Most of the ideas can be used for both beginning and advanced classes. Many require little to no preparation or special materials. The ideas can be used with any textbook, or without a textbook at all. These short, practical guides aim to make your teaching life easier, and your students' lives more rewarding and successful.
