Not only are they easy to use, but the organization of the materials and the anchor charts, mentor text connections and wonderful lessons are life-changing. I have spent my entire weekend reading and learning while re-planning my two writing and reading lessons I am in about to start on Monday.
This is the type of resource I have been looking for my entire teaching career. I teach 5th grade, but if they ever moved me to a lower grade, I would be ready and have a clue just by using these books. Thank you!!!!!

The book is designed to help you focus on what individual writers need or what your class as a whole needs. Once you determine the need, you can flip to that section, read up on it, and then browse the examples to make an informed choice. The fact that there are examples of actual student work included helps to visualize what to expect and if it would be a good fit for your target audience.
Serravallo includes suggested grade levels, genres, and stages in the writing process where each strategy best fits. She even includes mentor text suggestions. What more could you ask for?! And because she dedicates a whole page to each strategy, there is room for even more helpful information like lesson language and teaching tips! To round the pages out, she includes prompts. These are things like directives, questions, re-directions and compliments.
Finally, she includes and appendix with is filled with ideas to celebrate writing. Buy this book. Gift this book to a new teacher.
