Teaching Adolescent Writers (Paperback)

£27.50
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

In an increasingly demanding world of literacy, it has become critical that students know how to write effectively. From the requirements of standardised tests to those of the wired workplace, the ability to write well, once a luxury, has become a necessity. Many students are leaving school without the necessary writing practice and skills needed to compete in a complex and fast-moving Information Age. Unless we teach them how to run with it, they are in danger of being run over by a stampede-a literacy stampede.



In Teaching Adolescent Writers, Kelly Gallagher, author of Reading Reasons and Deeper Reading, shows how students can be taught to write effectively. Kelly shares a number of classroom-tested strategies that enable teachers to:



understand the importance of teaching writing

motivate young writers

see the importance modelling plays in building young writers (modelling from both the teacher and from real-world text

understand how providing choice elevates adolescent writing (and how to allow for choice within a rigorous curriculum>

help students recognise the importance of purpose and audience

assess essays in ways that drive better writing performance.





Infused with humour and illuminating anecdotes, Kelly draws on his classroom experiences and work as co-director of a regional writing project to offer teachers both practical ways to incorporate writing instruction into their day and compelling reasons to do so.

Kerry Gallagher is also a teacher with twenty one years of high school teaching experience behind him. He is currently a full-time teacher at Magnolia High School in Anaheim, California
