Product Description:

If you enjoyed If You're Trying to Teach Kids How to Write You've Gotta Have This Book, then you'll really appreciate authoress' Marjorie Franks taking her approach one step farther. She has joined her creative ideas with writing instruction and laid out actual, easy to teach lesson plans dealing with most every imaginable writing form. There are thirty lessons in this book. A motivating, high-interest activity begins each lesson to get things rolling. Then, the lessons direct the teacher to assist the student throughout the writing process - collecting and organizing ideas, writing a rough draft, critiquing and revising, practicing writing skills, and sharing the finished product. As the book states, the basic idea behind them is "students learn the writing process best through teacher-directed writing sessions." The book covers questions, reports, paragraphs, explanations, directions, conversations, character studies, various kinds of stories, news articles and headlines, invitations, posters, jokes, advertisements, diary entries, and poetry. Fun, well-written examples accompany the lessons. Cathy Duffy, in her Christian Home Educators Curriculum Manual says, "This is one of the best books for teaching writing because it effectively teaches skills in an enjoyable way and is easy for teachers to use." This book is also reproducible, making it an even better value. 127 pgs.
