Editorial Reviews

Review

''Concerned about your students' writing skills? Worried about how to prepare them for new performance assessments? In search of ideas for re-conceiving the teaching of writing on your campus? You have come to the right place. Writing Instruction That Works details and analyzes the state of writing in America's schools and offers a vision for how writing could and should be taught. For me, Arthur Applebee and Judith Langer's book is a call to action. Read it today. Buy a copy for every educator you know.'' --Carol Jago, past president, National Council of Teachers of English, associate director, California Reading and Literature Project, UCLA

''This book serves as a guide for what we must do to teach writing well and how we can do that despite the many challenges we face. It is a book that traces our progress, identifies our problems, and reminds us what is possible while revealing the ways we might achieve these ambitious and very important goals. If I had to recommend one book to a teacher, administrator, or professor to read about improving the teaching of writing in all content areas, this would be that book.'' --Jim Burke, author of The English Teacher's Companion and What's the Big Idea?
