Format: Paperback
WOW! This is a book that is easy to read and gives you useful ideas and lessons to bring back to your room right away. The author's message and ideas are expressed in an easy to read and inviting manner... Tony Stead makes you want to read more. He backs all of his examples with specific grade leveled lessons from K-3. Rubrics are included for grading as well as leveled texts to incorporate your writing with the area of reading. I have recommended this book to many people in my district and they have also loved it. As we shift our teaching to a more inquiry based science approach I know I will use this book more. Areas of writing it focuses on: persuasive writing, descriptive writing, instructional writing (directions, recipes, maps), biographies and many more! This book is not to be missed!

Excellent resource for teaching non-fiction. The next best thing to an in-person training with the author! The author is a great work-shop presenter too.

This book was recommended to me, so I ordered it, and am so glad I did. It is written in such an enthusiastic, energetic, engaging way that I want to do everything Tony Stead describes! He says what I've seen in my classroom - kids really "get into" the "real world" of not-fiction. They want to know why and how things work. Tony Stead gives many ideas of how to help children identify the different reasons for writing "non-fiction," and many concrete examples of how to guide students into writing their own non-fiction pieces. I like the way he doesn't just tell the students how to do it; instead, he guides them and leads them to discover for themselves, thus producing writing that truly reflects their thinking. I highly recommend this book.

Loved this book. Tony is so realistic about what it's like to work with young children and offers a great guided release model for teaching nonfiction writing. Includes rubrics. I will be using this a lot this coming school year.
