Book Recommendation: Writing Alone and With Others
I am participating in the 20 Day Blogging Challenge created by Kelly Hines and this is my first post. The Day One challenge is to share a favorite book and my favorite book to share with other teachers and use for my education classes is Writing Alone and With Others by Pat Schneider because this book reinforces my message about how writing should be taught and why so many people struggle with the transformation to writer. The book is wonderful for teachers as it supports our National Writing Project focus of making teachers writers “The Writer Alone” section but also offers lots of practical advice about writing workshop that is wonderful for creating a community of writers in your school (with other teachers) or in your classroom. In addition, the book has a number of great writing exercises that you can use or adapt for any group of writers.
