"Teaching Writing Grades 7-12 in an Era of Assessment is a thoughtful, student-centered book about teaching writing and reading that offers dozens of pragmatic ideas for teaching in the 'era of assessment.' These authors clearly understand pedagogy and provide readers with many excellent ideas and resources for improving writing instruction. I see this book as one that readers would set on the corner of the desk in their classroom and use again and again. Perhaps the best thing about it: all of these teachers are great writers themselves. Their prose is inviting and assuring. New teachers would be heartened by reading this book." - Daniel Boster, Ralston High School, Ralston, NE
"I believe the greatest strength of this book is that the authors are actual classroom teachers who have researched and developed the pedagogy presented within these pages. As an educator, I can relate to the experiences and struggles these teachers have endred to help them come to their present methods of teacher writing." - Susan Hampton, Virginia Middle School, Bristol, VA
