Product Overview

Writing Matters in Every Classroom shows how teachers, can orchestrate increased nonfiction writing in every classrooms and, by so doing, raise student achievement in all subject areas. Here you'll find strategies to help you use more nonfiction writing with students, no matter the subject. If increased writing correlates with higher achievement on standardized tests, why aren't students writing more in their classes? Why are young adults entering college and the workforce unprepared for the writing they are expected to do? And . . . what can teachers do to address these problems?

Compelling evidence, including data from 30 years of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), indicates that student writing is inadequate. Other provocative research indicates that if students write more frequently across the content areas, they outperform their peers who don't utilize writing. In this book, Dr. Angela Peery, creator of The Leadership and Learning Center's Writing to Learn seminars, explains simple strategies and shares implementation ideas about how writing can be used in every classroom to increase school_wide student success.
