An indispensable teacher resource and course text, this book presents evidence-based practices for helping all K-12 students develop their skills as writers. Every chapter draws clear connections to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Leading authorities describe how to teach the skills and strategies that students need to plan, draft, evaluate, and revise multiple types of texts. Also addressed are ways for teachers to integrate technology into the writing program, use assessment to inform instruction, teach writing in the content areas, and tailor instruction for English language learners and struggling writers. Helpful case examples are featured throughout.

"The book provides a thorough and incisive consideration of new and effective practices in writing instruction, giving timely attention to the Common Core State Standards. This is a rich source for current research and best-practice guidelines that is sure to be of interest to people engaged in all aspects of writing instruction, including teaching, curriculum development, assessment, and research. It is a valuable text for both graduate and undergraduate courses."--Joanna P. Williams, PhD, Department of Human Development, Teachers College, Columbia University
"Designed to drive classroom practice, this book has the potential to revolutionize how writing is taught in today's schools and classrooms. The editors and contributors describe how instruction should evolve to meet the writing standards of the Common Core. The volume also addresses important writing skills and processes that are not addressed in the CCSS but are necessary for a balanced, comprehensive writing program. It distills a dense body of research into a highly readable synthesis of what is core and critical to K-12 writing instruction. For current or aspiring teachers--as well as administrators whose responsibilities include leading, supporting and developing teachers--this is a 'must read.'"--Catherine D'Aoust, MS, Co-Director, University of California, Irvine Writing Project
