Product Description

Writing Essentials specifically and explicitly demonstrates practical, easy-to-do strategies that turn your writing instruction practices into best practices. Follow Routman's path for successfully leading all students-including English language learners, writers who struggle, and students coping with learning disabilities-from first draft to publication. You'll find expert advice and specific demonstrations on a wide variety of techniques, including: demonstrating your own writing process for students; organizing and managing the writing classroom; conducting effective, efficient writing conferences; creating meaningful rubrics for better assessment; teaching various forms of narrative and informational writing-and poetry; applying shared writing across the grades and across the curriculum; teaching editing and revision; mapping out your writing instruction with Regie's own flexible, five-day lesson-planning model.

In addition, Writing Essentials includes a DVD with eight three-to-four-minute video clips from primary and intermediate classrooms that show Regie conferring with writers and celebrating their work as she teaches and assesses. These invaluable clips, and the detailed notes that accompany them, take you inside the writing conference to see its structures and procedures while the sample classroom publications also on the DVD reveal the exciting possibilities of working with student writers.
