As any writing teacher will tell you, writing is about the journey, not the destination. This practical new book takes that idea to heart and presents a map for the trip based on the five elements of the Writer's Workshop: mini-lessons, reading, composing, sharing, and continuous assessment.

Two-part chapters first address the type of writing being considered—poetry, story, expository, journal, personal, or persuasive—in light of the five workshop elements; then, provide vignettes from three elementary classrooms that show the workshop elements being effectively implemented. Along the way, student artifacts from grades 1, 3, and 5—and the insights of three teachers from these grades—bolster the book's narrative.

For elementary school English teachers.
