Close Writing

Developing purposeful writers in grades 2-6

How closely do your students read their writing? What are the implications for those who do and those who don't?

No matter what structures or lessons you use in your writing classroom, the practical strategies in this comprehensive book will help you make these better by creating student writers who are more aware of what effective writing looks like, who care about what they write, and who take ownership and responsibility for their growth as writers. Students will be encouraged to read their words for understanding, clarity, and the effect they will have on an audience, as well as to recognize their habits and their approaches to writing and to build upon them. Considerations for ELL writers, a section of interviews with authors, an extensive reference/resource guide, and a companion website — offering students’ work samples, reproducibles and templates, and videos of classroom writing lessons — round out this must-have resource.
