Best book for teaching writing to kids ever!

Marcia's book is the best! It is completely practical and has step-by-step information about how to teach every genre of writing in totally KID-FRIENDLY terms! If your students aren't getting better by just going through the writing process, then this is the book for you! Her approach is unlike anything else on the market. It can make teaching writing, if not a breeze, then at least something over which you can gain control. I can't say enough about how useful this book is. If you can only buy one book to help you teach writing, then this is it!

This is a wonderful book!

This book is a great resource for all elementary teachers. It is easy to understand and practical for everyday ideas. This book is full of wonderful activities that can come in handy when planning a lesson plan.

Valuable source of information that is easy to implement.

Marcia Freeman recntly addressed the teachers in our county on this book. Everyone present was moved with her easy and practical advice for teaching writing. It was a truly innovative and exciting workshop. This book is full of useful and easy-to-implement teaching methods that actually make teaching writing easier with the results we want: better writing from our students.

Well worth it!

This book is a fabulous resource for constructing a school-wide writing community. We purchased it as a resource for all of our teachers and immediately began discussing it in small groups and staff developments. The teachers see it as a tool to help them keep student writers at the edge of their learning. We have seen writing scores on state-wide assessments increase in our school using the target skills and craft models discussed in this book.This book is easy to read and will be a great resource for years to come!
