Teaching Writing: Craft, Art, Genre
National Council of Teachers of English
In today's educational climate, it is more important than ever that teachers prepare their students to be effective and competent writers who can write for a variety of purposes. How can teachers teach their students the skills they need to be successful while also fostering an appreciation for the process, craft, and art of writing? Drawing from sound theory and research as well as on many years of experience in the English classroom, Fran Claggett and colleagues Joan Brown, Nancy Patterson, and Louann Reid have created a writing teacher's resource to help both new and experienced teachers sort through the often complex issues in the teaching of writing. With innovative, teacher-tested strategies for creating a classroom in which students thrive as writers, this book is a must-have addition to every writing teacher's library.
