Hooked on Writing: Ready-to-Use Writing Process Activities for Grades 4-8.
Behrman, Carol H.
Compiled by a classroom teacher for classroom teachers, this book presents over 75 activities and over 140 associated worksheets designed to implement the process approach to writing in the fourth through eighth grade classroom. The book notes that process writing provides the student not only with a "recipe" for writing, but also with two enormously effective tools--motivation and control. Each chapter of the book offers a series of activity instructions followed by one or more blackline master activity worksheets for each activity. Chapter titles are: (1) Unlocking the Doors to Written Expression; (2) Creative Writing; (3) Writing a Personal Essay; (4) Preparing a "Writer's Notebook"; (5) Journal Writing; (6) Journalism; (7) Letters; (8) Poetry; and (9) Publication.
