In The Press

"It is refreshing to see the content so thoroughly covered with both theory and practical applications. Chapman and King do a wonderful job of showing how a teacher can differentiate all aspects of the writing process so that students can become authors. They also show how every teacher can be a teacher of writing! The book is not only easy to read, but the activities are easy to implement in any discipline."
