By Graham Foster. Writing improves when students learn planning, revision, and assessment strategies that specifically apply to their different writing forms. This book helps students move from generic writing process guidelines to specific and practical strategies related to these important writing forms:

  • narration
  • business letters
  • lyric poetry
  • exploratory writing
  • persuasion/deliberative inquiry research

Each form is thoroughly discussed and includes suggestions for exploring key features, planning strategies, specific revision criteria, and assessment techniques. The book also includes handy rubrics and reproducible pages that can be shared with students to make them part of the whole process. With student-friendly language and relevant writing exemplars, this practical book shows teachers how to help students add clarity and color to their writing. The reference section presents fresh and imaginative information about effective titles, creative comparisons, organizational patterns, conventions, sentence variety, transitions, and word choice.
