Writing: Teachers and Children at Work.
Graves, Donald H.
Intended to assist classroom teachers with promoting and improving children's writing, this book allows teachers to see other professionals and children solve problems that arise in the midst of both teaching and writing. In one sense it is a collection of workshops with the first part of the book emphasizing teacher activity and the second part emphasizing child growth in the writing process. The five sections cover the following topics: (1) starting to teach writing, (2) making the student-teacher writing conference work, (3) helping children learn the skills they need, (4) understanding how children develop as writers, and (5) documenting children's writing development.
