Journeys: The Teaching of Writing in the Elementary Classrooms (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


For Writing Methods for the Elementary School.As any writing teacher will tell you, writing is about the journey, not the destination. This practical new text takes that idea to heart and presents a map for the trip based on the five elements of the Writer's Workshop: mini-lessons, reading, composing, sharing, and continuous assessment. Two-part chapters first address the type of writing being considered-poetry, story, expository, journal, personal, or persuasive-in light of the five workshop elements; then, provide vignettes from three elementary classrooms that show the workshop elements being effectively implemented. Along the way, student artifacts from grades 1, 3, and 5-and the insights of three teachers from these grades-bolster the text's narrative.

Carolyn L. Piazza is an associate professor of reading and language arts and elementary education at Florida State University, where she teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in language arts, written composition, and applied linguistics. She also spends each semester supervising student teachers and working with classroom teachers in the public schools. Dr. Piazza is the author of several professional works on language and composition and, for a time, wrote a weekly literacy column, Ask Carolyn, in the local newspaper. Her most recent book, Multiple Forms of Literacy: Teaching Literacy and the Arts, brings together her passion for language with the visual and performing arts. She enjoys gardening, studying Italian, and, above all, her two Yorkies.
