This remarkable book will show teachers how to guide students through the various stages of the writing process and teach them to focus on the purpose for writing in all kinds of non-fiction. It will help teachers assess what students know so they can plan more successful instruction. Teachers of content-area subjects will discover ways they can help their students become better, more capable writers. They will learn how to take students through all the steps involved in producing written documents - from generating ideas to researching to revising and editing - along with practical tips for supporting and encouraging student work. "Exploring Writing in the Content Areas" suggests specific techniques designed to help students: organise information into paragraphs; use visual elements like photographs, charts, and diagrams to enhance written text; find and document secondary source material; create powerful pictures using words. This practical book also explains how teachers can provide student writers with the concrete, constructive feedback they need. It demonstrates how assessment can guide effective teaching practices. Good writers think more clearly, organise information more logically, and approach all their schoolwork with greater confidence and self-assurance. This indispensable resource proves that helping students develop their writing skills is one of the most important contributions any teacher can make towards student success in school, and beyond.
