This book recounts the struggles and successes of one Seattle School District secondary school composition teacher guiding special education students through the writing process. The nine students had an IQ range of 59 to 109 and had an age range of 14 to 17 years. Of the students assigned to this class: one was neurologically impaired; one was mentally retarded; two were emotionally disturbed; and five were language and learning disabled. Included are writing samples of the students, sample assignment sheets, descriptions of classroom activities, and an explanation of the methodology used in guiding the students through the process.
