“In Creating Young Writers, Vicki shows teachers how to look at any piece of writing and focus on the power and strengths within. The shared language of the craft she creates with terms like organization, leads, fluency, detail, and many others offers students and teachers both increased understanding of how writing works and a sense of control over that writing. Knowing the craft helps keep the ball in their court. It builds confidence–one of the best foundations for skill . . . .

 

In this book, you will find numerous samples of fiction and nonfiction books to help you and your students learn from master authors. In addition, you’ll find practical writing lessons that combine traits with writing process, and numerous authentic student samples that show ideas, voice, fluency, and other features of strong writing emerging in the work of our very youngest writers. At a time in the United States where mandated testing has tempted too many of our veteran and first-year teachers to turn to formulaic writing instruction for quick answers, Creating Young Writers comes as a precious antidote: real writing instruction that can motivate students and boost test scores without deadening spirits.

 

Vicki Spandel is a writer who teaches writing. If you read her book carefully and follow its philosophy, you are likely to find yourself going further as a writing teacher than you ever dreamed you could. As the title suggests, you will create a class of writers, and one important member of that class will be you.”

– From the Foreword by Barry Lane

 

“If you believe that writing can rock the world, then this is your book. If you believe primary students are writers, that they communicate important ideas through their words and art, this is your book. If you can hardly wait to see and hear what your writers have to tell you next, then this is your book. Welcome to a celebration of primary writing.”

From the Preface by Vicki Spandel
