Writing Skills Teacher's Handbook

An excellent resource for differentiating writing instruction in the classroom, the Writing Skills Teacher's Handbook explains how to teach writing through explicit instruction, models, and samples of student writing at various stages. Also includes cross-curricular applications, writing prompts, and discussion of state and national writing assessments.
