fabulous resource

I found this book to be a fabulous resource with many fantastic ideas for teachers to incorporate into their writing programs. I was amazed when my students showed such enthusiasm toward their writing assignment. More amazing was thier eagerness to share what they had written. Every writing teacher should own this book.

Inspired Writing Lessons

Essential Ingredients, by Sandra Worsham is filled with creative and specific lessons for teaching writing to our most reluctant learners. I purchased the book on Friday, read it over the weekend and was ready to present my first lesson to my retained third graders (most reluctant writers!) on Monday. My students were motivated by the imaginative (yet specific enough for them)ideas. A sixth grade colleague implemented Sandra's "Helping Circle"--her technique for revision--one day, and by the next all students were busy making their own revisions before coming to the "Helping Circle". Experienced teachers will certainly be inspired by the lessons, and new teachers will find a terrific model for creating a safe writing atmosphere while teaching the complete writing process. You will find actual student writing samples that are helpful in explaining key points. Sandra also shares her Southern Hospitality with her readers through Mama's recipes. The brownies are terrific! This is an important addition to an educator's professional library.
