A clear, classroom-tested method that provides targeted student feedback

By Judith C. Hochman and Natalie Wexler. Turn weak writers into strong communicators with this research-based method of instruction that breaks down the writing process into manageable chunks, has students repeatedly practice the chunks they need to work on most, and provides prompt, targeted feedback. Emphasis is initially on sentences as the basic building blocks of writing, and then moves to sentence expansion, paragraph writing, and compositions. Sample exercises address such skills as note taking, outlining, drafting, revising and summarizing, and serve to improve not only writing but also reading comprehension, speaking, analytical abilities, and organizational skills. The strategies and activities can be easily adapted into content curriculum and weaved into instruction; no separate writing block or curriculum is necessary. Index. Appendixes. Glossary. 8½" x 11". Wiley. 276 pages. ©2017.
