Strategies for Teaching Writing | Roger Caswell, Brenda Mahler

#teachersoflitsy
I need your help! This summer I want to read some great books about teaching writing to elementary schools students (1st/2nd grade) Writing is the subject I enjoy teaching the least, but I really want to change that. Hit me with some recommendations!

Lauram Good luck! I hope someone is able to help you out with some great recommendations. 5mo
slategreyskies I love writing, but I don‘t understand your question. Do you want childrens‘ books about writers and their lives or do you want books that will teach children how to write? 5mo
slategreyskies Oh—- or do you want book recommendations for adults on the subject of teaching writing to children? 5mo
See All 6 Comments
slategreyskies I was picturing you sitting in a chair with children sitting in a semi-circle in front of you while you read to them out loud from a childrens‘ book, but I‘m not sure if that‘s what you meant or not. Sorry—- I‘m overthinking it! 😂 5mo
irre @slategreyskies I‘m looking for books for me to read about how to teach writing to elementary students. 5mo
slategreyskies That sounds tricky. I don‘t know much about writing in those grades. This book does look good, though—- No More “I‘m Done!” by Jennifer Jacobson. :) 5mo
