This collection of essays by well-established professional writers explores how their notebooks serve as their studios and workshops—places to collect, to play, and to make new discoveries with language, passions, and curiosities. For these diverse writers, the journal also serves as an ideal forum to develop their writing voice, whether crafting fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. Some entries include sample journal entries that have since developed into published pieces. Through their individual approaches to keeping a notebook, the contributors offer valuable advice, personal recollections, and a hardy endorsement of the value of using notebooks to document, develop, and nurture a writer's creative spark. Designed for writers of all genres and all levels of experience, Writers and Their Notebooks celebrates the notebook as a vital tool in a writer's personal and literary life.

The primary grades offer young students opportunities to tackle the basics of reading and writing. But when they encounter the demands of intermediate and middle-level writing, many students become unresponsive, and the gap between the "willing" and "less willing" student widens. Reclaiming Reluctant Writers explores the myths and realities of writing and shows teachers how to give struggling students the knowledge, understanding, and confidence to write willingly and well. This practical guide features classroom-tested activities that take students from isolated skills to a deep and rich understanding of the form and function of language. Included in the book are many strategies for teaching the essentials of good writing: Topics and Flow of Ideas Organization Fluency and Experimentation Competency Peer Editing Power and Voice Reclaiming Reluctant Writers focuses on inspiring and nurturing young writers to become more competent and to regard writing not as a chore, but as a purposeful, pleasurable and satisfying experience.

"Explains how writer's notebooks can help students improve their nonfiction writing--reports, articles, memoirs, essays, and so forth--which has taken on even greater importance because of the emphasis the Common Core State Standards place on informative/explanatory writing. As Aimee explains, the prewriting work a student does is particularly important when writing informational pieces. Writer's notebooks help students capture their thoughts, develop ideas, explore mentor texts, refine a research strategy, and play with multiple outcomes--all of which lead to stronger concepts and better first drafts. Greater emphasis on the front end of the writing process also saves time and energy at the revision and editing stages. From exploring topics to gathering information to assessment, Nonfiction Notebooks takes teachers step-by-step through the process of how best to use notebooks for informational writing.
