"Mary Tedrow's book Write,Think, Learn offers an excellent collection of practical instructional strategies teachers can use to help their students become better writers. I know that I will be using many of them myself!"--Larry Ferlazzo, English and Social Studies Teacher, EdWeek blogger, and author of several books, including Building a Community of Self-Motivated Learners: Strategies to Help Students Thrive in School and Beyond
"The best advice ever for writers is the Roman maxim, 'nulla dies sine linea'-never a day without a line. In this practical and motivating book, master teacher Mary Tedrow shows how to use daybooks to build fluency, engage course content, and reflect on learning. Through daily practice, students come to view writing as a natural form of expression-not an attempt to fit someone else's imposed formula."--Thomas Newkirk, Award-Winning Author, Educator, and Professor Emeritus, University of New Hampshire
