This book is wonderful! I heard about it on an online forum (I don't remember now) and rushed to Amazon. There is a newer version available, but I got this one for less money and I adore it. I will be using the structures and lesson plans to teach my students the valuable skills Ms. Cole explains about responding to prompts. Before, I always thought that teaching like this takes the joy out of writing for my students, after reading this book, I now realize that I wasn't giving my students the tools they needed to express their ideas -- all in the name of freedom! So I will restructure my reading/writing block and allow time for free choice writing workshop, but also teach explicitly the tools in Better Answers so my students will be better able to show their thinking! I highly recommend this book -- Second Edition came with a CD, I can't imagine how it can be better in a newer edition!

I am a middle school intervention specialist in one of the top districts in my state. The lessons and concepts in this book will be my main focus for the 2013-2014 school year. They apply across all content areas. Shipped quickly, and was in excellent/new condition.

I enjoyed Better Answers very much. I was looking for more information to help my young writers feel more confident and secure in there writing. I love the explanation of restating the question in the answer, and also the sandwich method of writing. It is very visual for children to see the posters and know there writing is like a sandwich the more in it the better it is .

If you are required to do a "test prep" unit before your high stakes testing, throw it out and buy this book. Better Answers systematically teaches students how to create written responses, in ANY subject area and in ANY grade, that looks great and sound smart! Her simple and effective ideas will improve written responses immediately. The second edition has the best cd-rom I have ever bought with a book. It has PowerPoint slides and visual aides that you can print out, as well as live links to state assessment websites all over the country. This book is used by my entire grade level team and we are very excited about its results.
