Answers to Your Biggest Questions About Teaching Elementary Writing: Five to Thrive [series]

"True this is a book for teachers, but ultimately it is a book for students. This is a book about using every avenue possible —whole group instruction, small group instruction, partner work, charts, thoughtful language (just to name a few!) to discover all that students know and are able to do and to invite them into co-crafting the instruction that matches their goals and their aspirations. Melanie Meehan has written the book that maps out bit by bit how to become a writing teacher worthy of the children we are privileged to teach."

- Shana Frazin, Co-Author of Unlocking the Power of Classroom Talk
