Description

Both students and teachers will love this handy guide that features twelve classroom-tested strategies that add value to story writing. Using student exemplars to illustrate desirable features, the book challenges students to note use of these strategies in published works, and go on to use them in their own writing. It will help students set and reach personal goals for using effective planning strategies, writing better beginnings and endings, writing with voice, dealing with spelling and usage demons, using purposeful revision strategies, and much more. This eminently useful flipbook will also help students relate strategies to items in assessment rubrics, as well as to write effective stories under test conditions.
