'The book pinpoints characteristic behaviors of falling writers and pairs them up with simple-to-use techniques that you can incorporate into your classroom or that parents can use at home with their children to bolster confidence and success' - Karla Bronzynski, First-Grade Teacher, Eldora-New Providence Schools, IA

President, Iowa Reading Association

Catch young writers before they fall through the cracks!

The ideal companion to Connie Hebert's Catch a Falling Reader, this easy-to-use resource helps primary teachers "catch" falling writers before feelings of frustration, defeat, and low confidence develop, making it difficult for children to catch up.

Catch a Falling Writer presents concise approaches for engaging and working with young writers who have challenges with language, vocabulary, fine-motor competency, grammar, diction, correct pencil grip, or letter/sound recognition. Perfect for teachers, literacy specialists and coaches, special education teachers, and student teachers striving to close the gap between reading instruction and writing proficiency, this resource presents:

- Innovative, research-based strategies for engaging students in writing, setting a purpose for writing, and teaching the mechanics of writing

- Strategies that can be used as curriculum supplements to foster independent writing

- Resources and Web sites for further information
