Book News Annotation:

This resource guide, which includes pedagogy, lessons, theory, and practical advice intends to give teachers in grades five through 12 the tools to set up, operate, promote and evaluate writing workshops within classrooms. It explains the various roles of those involved (including teachers, students and parents) and gives practical advice on managing the workshop, including ways to use the reproducible promotional materials, handouts, lists of rules, logs, analysis sheets and checklists provided. It then works through the basic topics within the workshop, including "pre-writing," drafting, revising, editing and publishing with over 100 mini-lessons on types of writing, the art of writing, and mechanics. This edition also includes new material on how to make effective use of technology.

Synopsis:

Timesaving information and activities that every writing teacher needs

Like the original book, this Second Edition of the Writing Workshop Survival Kit is designed for easy implementation. Ideal for middle and high school use, each activity and mini-lesson can stand alone or be taught sequentially. Along with updated and refreshed lists, new material for this edition focuses on technology– computers, the Internet, high-speed copiers, digital cameras, and electronic sources of information– and their use in the writing workshop. New reproducibles include such topics as " Tips for Using Search Engines" and " E-mail Etiquette for Writers." This completely revised and enhanced edition moves writing skills to the forefront, just as revised college testing spotlights a specific need.
