At Middleweb: A Plethora of Writing Ideas

I recently reviewed this new book — The Writing Strategies Book: Your Everything Guide to Developing Skilled Writers by Jennifer Serravallo – and I thought it covered a lot of ground in a fairly easy-to-use format. There are a wide range of ideas for the classroom on engaging young writers. I counted about 300 ideas in here. That’s a lot of possibilities.

I wrote in my review:

Flip through the book to find a ton of great ideas — helping students engage more with their own writing process; organizing ideas for short and longer fiction and non-fiction pieces; structuring assignments for all learners, or providing structure for student collaboration opportunities.

See what you think. Read the review over at Middleweb.

Peace (in books),

  1. Thank you for this post. While I am not necessarily a young writer (I am a senior in High School) I am one who is really trying to develop into not only a good writer, but one who really enjoys writing, too. I like to write fictional pieces; pieces that are crafted with my own imagination and do not have any pre-set boundaries. I admittedly struggle with prompted writing and writing to a set of guidelines or about things that are not necessarily fiction (essays are a good example). I will definitely be reviewing this book to see if it has any valuable practice items for me.I will also be peeking at some of your other posts, too, as I am working on reading a lot more and am always looking for suggestions!
