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.
