"The market has sorely needed a writing text that addresses the needs of both the junior high and senior high student. Many claim to do so, but this is the first one I have seen that actually and specifically does what it claims." - Anna Boiling, California State University-Stanislaus

"Having a text that clearly ties evaluation to writing tasks, that demonstrates how to use rubrics to think about what students need to know, and outlines how to develop a variety of rubrics are clear assets of this book." - Patricia P. Kelly, Virginia Tech University

"Teaching Writing in Middle and Secondary Schools is full of practical ideas, simply and clearly presented, that a busy teacher can immediately use in a classroom. I'm also impressed with the number and variety of forms which busy teachers can use, including: a portfolio cover assignment, a Six-Trait track record for evaluating traits of writing, a thorough and clear rubric that describes each level for each trait, peer evaluation forms, a rubric for team writing portfolios, a reading survey, and other assessment rubrics." - Harold Nelson, Minot State University
