Raising Writers: Understanding and Nurturing Young Children's Writing Development, 1/e

 

Join children’s writing enthusiast Ruth Shagoury for an exploration of how primary educators can nurture connections between oral and pictorial communication and writing skills at every stage of development. This much-needed resource focuses on helping young learners make that transition from spoken to written language. Its strong research base and attention to developmental stages gives early childhood specialists the very best background to build an effective program in today’s multicultural classrooms. Ruth also provides work samples and photos, recommendations for further reading, a book club study guide for readers, and a wealth of resources for extending student learning beyond the classroom. When you build early writing skills with these expert steps, you build literacy for a lifetime!

 

“The author has a lot of experience with this age of student.  I would love to see [this book] in the hands of all kindergarten classroom teachers in my building so that they all would have a common understanding of the beginning writing process.”  –Carla Chavez, reading specialist, Prairie Park Elementary, Lawrence, Kansas

 

“Ruth is an accomplished educator and scholar and it shows. The book’s strength is the number and quality of student writing samples and detailed commentary on them.”  –Kathryn Egawa, National Council of Teachers of English Associate Executive Director, 1999-2005

 

Ruth Shagoury teaches new and veteran teachers at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, and is the author or coauthor of numerous articles and books, including Starting with Comprehension (Stenhouse Publishers). A regular contributor to www.ChoiceLiteracy.com, she cannot imagine anything more fascinating than studying and celebrating children and adolescents as they grow as writers and readers.

Book News Annotation:

Recent research has demonstrated the ability of young children in literate cultures to apply their oral language-learning skills to the written word. Drawing on a developmental perspective articulated by Jerome Harste (1984) and Anne Haas Dyson (2003), Shagoury (Lewis & Clark College) outlines a framework for viewing children's oral and written language along a developmental continuum. Writing in an accessible style, she describes strategies for understanding and nurturing children's written language at each stage of development along this continuum, from scribbling through sound-symbol relationships and beginning narrative, and gives numerous b&w examples of children's work at each stage. A book club study guide includes an interview with the author and discussion questions. Annotated lists of books for teachers and students are also included. The book is intended to give early childhood specialists background for building an effective learning program in today's multicultural classrooms.
