Scholastic’s Writing With Writers
- Grades: 3–5
Writing With Writers is an awesome resource on Scholastic.com. As a teacher, I know that there is no greater motivation for students than tips and advice from real, published authors, especially when those authors' books are on the shelves of our classroom library.
If you have not checked this out or used it with your students, you are missing out! Where else can students receive step-by-step instructions on writing a myth from Jane Yolen, advice on how to capture moments using descriptive writing from the late and great Virginia Hamilton, tips for writing fun poetry from Jack Prelutsky (along with a Webcast of him reading his poetry aloud), and so much more!
Teacher guides are also available for each of the nine featured genres.
