MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book provides useful ideas and strategies for partnering with classroom teachers and will make a useful addition to the professional collection in a school library, and in a public library children's services and outreach collection." - Colorado Association of Libraries
"This book provides practical suggestions enabling media specialists to participate in and support their schools' writing programs. The authors encourage staff to create writing process displays and provide excellent examples. Chapter three discusses the value of collaboration and provides a collaboration template for media specialists and teachers. The next five chapters cover each area of the writing process. At the end of each chapter the authors present four collaborative lesson plans. Each lesson identifies academic, information literacy, and NETS standards. The final chapter offers ways to respond to what children write. The wealth of writing information is this book benefits teachers as much as media specialists. Many writing manuals are heavy reads filled with 'eduspeak,' but this readable guide provides a variety of practical applications. Media specialists should read this book to enhance their participation in school writing. Those not actively collaborating with teachers should get some inspiration here so they can work with teachers to remind students that communication is the goal of writing by sharing the rich, authentic literature in the library. A helpful addition might have been an accompanying CD-ROM with reproducible writing display 'posters' and collaboration guide, and additional lessons. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
"Two K-12 teachers and one library media specialist offer strategies to librarians for teaching writing across the curriculum through the process method and collaboration with classroom teachers. Chapters offer tools for discussing prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing, as well as tips on assisting students individually in each of those steps. Other material discusses research important to teaching the writing process, and strategies for giving feedback on final products. Reproducible posters and lessons are included throughout the book. Also provided are writing resources for students." - Reference & Research Book News
