The advantages of the throwaway pilot chute are: (a) without a coil spring it packs
smaller, and (b) because the sky diver throws the pilot chute to his side, it enters
clear air ... No parachute comes off the sky diver's back after a ripcord pull.

Research and experience show that when teachers give children choice in what they write about, students' engagement in their writing increases. So imagine what can happen when you offer them choices about what genres to write in and what kinds of voices to write from. The possibilities are unlimited, and the strength and depth of the connection that students make to a subject can be profound. In Writing Without Boundaries you'll find out how to unlock this potential in all your students as they discover what it means to write with purpose. Writing Without Boundaries gives you everything you need to get started teaching multigenre writing. Suzette Youngs and Diane Barone demonstrate why it works, providing the rationale, the research, and examples of completed student work. Then they take you inside classrooms to show how they and other teachers implement multimodal papers and how these lessons in topic selection, organization, audience, planning, and presentation will forever change how primary and intermediate students approach writing. You'll discover how the writing workshop model can help you coordinate the efforts of your whole class even while you support each student in selecting from more than 60 genres to communicate their interests. Best of all, Writing Without Boundaries includes classroom-tested units of study that use multigenre writing to enhance and extend your curriculum across the disciplines. These units give students the chance to explore content from several perspectives as they: write and speak from the point of view of historical figures compose biographies of famous or personally meaningful figures investigate historical situations respond to literature. With its emphasis on choice, voice, and audience, Writing Without Boundaries cultivates students' familiarity with genres while also helping them understand how real-world readers and writers communicate through genre and how a single topic can be seen, and written about, from many, many perspectives. Show students the power of combining genres. Read Writing Without Boundaries and open them up to a new world of possibilities.

This account of the Great War puts you right in the action—from one of the fighter pilots of the Royal Flying Corps. From the young airmen who took their frail machines high above the trenches of World War I and fought their foes in single combat, there emerged a renowned company of brilliant aces—among them Ball, Bishop, McCudden, Collishaw, and Mannock—whose legendary feats have echoed down half a century. But behind the elite pilots in the Royal Flying Corps, there were many hundreds of airmen who flew their hazardous daily sorties in outdated planes without ever achieving fame. Here is the story of one of these unknown flyers—a story based on letters written in the day, telling of a young pilot’s progress from fledgling to seasoned fighter. His descriptions of air fighting, sometimes against the Richthofen Circus, of breathless dogfights between Sopwith Pup and Albatros, are among the most vivid and immediate to come out of World War I. Arthur Gould Lee, who rose to the rank of air vice-marshal and also authored the classic Open Cockpit, brilliantly conveys the immediacy of air war, the thrills and the terror, in this honest and timeless account.
