The key to successful student writing is effective teaching and scaffolding before and during the writing process. In this powerful book, veteran teacher Mary Sullivan provides explicit lessons that demonstrate what effective writing looks like. Students apply these writing criteria to short, focused pieces, which Sullivan responds to before the final draft is submitted. It's this immediate feedback with the expectation of revision that really moves students ahead as writers. Sullivan annotates her responses, giving you insight into her thinking, and then she shares the resulting revision. Wow! You'll be inspired by the results, and you'll have just the tools you need to use this approach successfully in your own classroom. For use with Grades 5 & Up.
