Self-Directed Writers: The Third Essential Element in The Writing Workshop

 

Happy New Year!  I’m excited to announce that my new book is out!  This book will help you create self-directed writers while still upholding a standards based classroom.

I sincerely hope that my book can help you create writers who are excited, persistent, engaged and many other great words.

For more information on my book and to see a sample chapter you can go to:  http://www.heinemann.com/products/E04800.aspx.  You can also order it at Amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/Self-Directed-Writers-Essential-Element-Workshop/dp/0325048002 or at Barnes and Nobles at  http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/self-directed-writers-leah-mermelstein/1116075331?ean=9780325048000

I’m hoping to use my blog this year as a place for people to share what discover while trying to get their students to become more self-directed. In the next few weeks, I will share some ideas and I hope to hear some of yours. Until then have a great start to the year and I hope that my book helps you do that.
