    Teaching Writing That Matters

    Teaching Writing That Matters

    by Chris W. Gallagher;Amy Lee

    Language Arts teachers and teachers in other content areas will find in this book an exciting new framework for teaching adolescent writing and a wealth of tools to enact it in their classrooms. The emerging Writing Studies framework encourages student growth through reflection on writing, purposeful and audience-aware projects, and the support of a writing community. The book includes innovative “project toolboxes” that show teachers how to motivate students to write with confidence and skill from their own experiences, the texts they read, and the research they conduct.
