Success in school, in work, and in life can be greatly enhanced by the ability to write effectively. And due to the writing process revolution we are gradually improving the quality of writing. The writing process focuses on exploring metacognitively what writers actually do throughout a writing task; how real writers go about constructing texts. Teachers work closely with students, helping them to understand writing as a communication and learning process. The importance of the creation, expression, and comprehension of meaning is emphasized throughout the process. Because writing is a complex process, students need to progress through a number of levels, not necessarily in a linear fashion, to experience the process. Too often students approach writing with a "one and done" mentality, failing to recognize that complex writing cannot be accomplished in a single sitting, in a single draft. We need to help them realize that successful writers are reflective about their writing processes and habits, learning what procedures work best and adapting them to suit particular situations. The best forum for implementing the writing process into the classroom is through a writer's workshop. A typical writer's workshop is a block of time scheduled each day for students to work through the steps in the process. It is important to remember that writing should extend across the curriculum. If a block of writing time can't be scheduled for one day it should be integrated into another subject. Writing should be viewed as a means of communicating and emerge naturally out of other activities. Teachers should make writing so integral to each lesson that the flow of the class is smooth from mental to verbal to written communication. Teachers using the workshop approach do not ignore the product and parts of language. Instead, the product is considered within the process. Grammar and mechanics are taught in the context of use. In the past, the teaching of formal grammar usually displaced some instruction and practice in actual composition. Unfortunately, with our overcrowded curriculum, teachers can't afford to spend excessive class time on decontexualized grammar exercises that involve little or no actual composition. Students should be given daily opportunities to explore writing and create written text for various purposes. We know that writing is a powerful tool that can influence others and clarify one's own thoughts. Teaching the writing process through the workshop approach can give students the key to unlocking this powerful tool. And the activities in this book are designed to help make the process easier for teachers to pick up and implement today. You will find over 200 mini lessons designed to stimulate critical and creative thinking that can be applied to written composition in all phases of the writing process. Students will continue to recognize that adults who use these activities in the context of authentic literacy lessons are those who are committed to facilitating and promoting only the very best of writers.

Ask successful writers and they'll tell you, the key to writing well is revision. Ask elementary school teachers and they'll tell you, the real challenge of writing instruction is teaching kids how to revise. Ruth Culham is both a successful writer and a writing teacher, and she's discovered how to teach writing and revision in a way that's accessible to both teacher and students: First read the writing, assess it using the traits of writing, then teach the writers and guide revision decisions using traits as a common language and map. This book shows you how to assess and teach writing in a way that's practical and doable--and best of all, see results. Part 1 walks you through the traits of writing and their key qualities, showing step by step how to read students' writing and offer feedback that nudges them forward through the revision process. Chapters will help you address challenges students face within each mode of writing (narrative, expository, persuasive), and provide tools young writers can use to evaluate their own writing and make revision decisions accordingly. Part 2 dives into instruction, offering specific guidance for how to use what you've learned from reading student writing to design lessons that scaffold students toward making their own craft decisions and revisions. In addition, there's an entire chapter devoted to mentor texts that you can use to model traits and key qualities for your students.

Wer legt fest, was ein Wort bedeutet?: Nick ist ein kluger Lausbub und hat viele Tricks auf Lager, um Lehrpersonen vom Aufgabengeben abzuhalten. Doch bei der neuen Lehrerin der fünften Klasse versagen sie. So muss Nick selber einen Vortrag darüber halten, warum das Wörterbuch wichtig ist fürs Leben. Diese Aufgabe beschäftigt ihn: Wer bestimmt denn, was ein Wort bedeuten soll? Nick kommt auf die Idee, ein eigenes Wort zu erfinden. Anstatt Kugelschreiber oder Bleistift sagt er in Zukunft nur noch "Frindel". In kürzester Zeit setzt sich das Wort im ganzen Schulhaus durch. Gerade auch, weil die Lehrerin Mrs. Granger so dagegen ist. Die ganze Geschichte kommt in der Lokalzeitung und wahrhaftig auch im Fernsehen. Immer mehr Menschen übernehmen das Wort, viel Geld lässt sich mit dessen Vermarktung verdienen. Nach zehn Jahren erhält es seinen Platz im offiziellen Wörterbuch. Da erhält Nick einen Brief von seiner ehemaligen Lehrerin, der eine grosse Überraschung beinhaltet! Eine witzige Schulgeschichte, die zum Nachdenken über die Bedeutung von Wörtern anregt und darüber, was Sprache eigentlich ist. Ab 10 Jahren, gut, Irene Beglinger-Flückiger.
