Review

This book has exceptional potential for classroom teachers! The framework and theory provided are written clearly. The examples are helpful. I love the lesson plans! There are multiple uses for classroom teachers and content area teachers in science and social studies. I would encourage all of my schools to study, implement, and reflect on the lessons and activities outlined in this book! --Jennifer Seydel, Ph.D., School Designer, Midwest Region, Expeditionary Learning Schools, Madison, WI

Rapparlie s approach highlights the experiential nature of learning to write and gives teachers ideas they can use in their own classrooms for engaging students with the writing process. The experiential paradigm that informs all of her activities becomes a powerful model for designing original classroom activities that fit your topic. In this way Rapparlie not only gives you some nice lures to help hook your students on the writing process, she also teaches you to fish so you can design a curriculum specifically angled to the stream of knowledge that flows through your class. --Michael Goeller, Associate Director, Rutgers University-New Brunswick Writing Program

Here is a demonstration of writing s natural connection to experiential learning. The ready-to-go activities and lessons are thoughtful, creative and time-savers for educators. The activities and rationale support writing across the curriculum and character/values education, which is a focus of many educators in the 21st century. The activities are clearly explained, well organized, and include useful debriefing suggestions ideal for novice to more advanced practitioners. --Jen Lara, Professor of Education and Blogger
