Writing to Live: How to Teach Writing for Today's World / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- I recommend this book to all teachers who teach writing . . . the way you teach writing will change forever.
- Brian Cambourne, Wollongong University
- welcoming children to think and write about "hot topics" of their choice
- encouraging them to bring their out-of-school literacies into the classroom
- inviting them to explore a broad range of genres
- asking students to write with purpose and answer challenging questions
- promoting critical literacy techniques such as considering author purpose and values, identifying stereotypes, and responding to and rewriting texts.
Every community loves its children, but in some places, the writing curriculum doesn't nurture students in ways that help them develop into responsible decision makers. Let Writing to Live be your guide, and make a change for the better.
