About the Author

Donald H. Graves was involved in writing research for decades. His books Writing: Teachers & Children at Work (Heinemann, 1983) and A Fresh Look at Writing (Heinemann, 1994) are bestsellers throughout the English-speaking world and have revolutionized the way writing is taught in schools. Don was a teacher, school principal, and language supervisor, education director, and a director of language in bilingual, ESL, and special programs. He was also the codirector of an undergraduate urban teacher preparation program and a professor of an early childhood program. He was Professor Emeritus at the University of New Hampshire. Donald H. Graves 9.11.1930 - 9.28.2010 Heinemann is deeply saddened by the news that Donald Graves has passed away. We, and the entire field, have lost a giant and one of our greatest friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with his widow, Betty, their family, and the many friends he made in his long career. We are honored to have been Don's publishing partner for more than three decades and over more than a dozen books-to have watched his research and vision become not only a classroom reality but the core of our publishing philosophy. His influence is so vast that we will meet him again and again on the pages of every book and resource we publish. His spirit pervades each of our books-in the conviction that children want to write and read if given the chance; in the flourishing of the workshop model of instruction that he pioneered; and in his abiding faith in teachers' ability to make sound instructional decisions. Don touched so many teachers' lives with his smile, his unflagging encouragement, and his generosity of spirit. We hope you will take a brief moment to remember how he touched your life. Watch a recent interview with Don » Remembering how Don touched your life » The Donald Graves memorial fund » Eight Children Teach Donald Graves Nine pencils break the surface of awareness, jutting into the air, slanted back like yellow, orange-tipped shark fins, entering chartless white, exploring hazy depths. Nine voices search a scent, suddenly lurch, lose the line, pause, pick it up again, and move from cloudy, roiling waters of new thought through warm currents of reception, straits of questioning, and tidal imbalances on to a clear, precise sea of meaning. - Tom Romano (Language Arts, 62,2 (Feb.) 1985: 142

Several years ago this book inspired me to do a master's thesis/study on teaching second graders to write. I even had the opportunity to speak to the author on the phone! Yes, this is the origination of a retooled idea now known as Writer's Workshop but somewhat more conceptual as to why a particular procedure is followed within the instructional model. This is a must have for teachers and administrators.

I purchased the 20th anniversary edition of Donald Graves' Writing: Teachers & Children at Work and I am very glad I did. Some how I missed this treasure over the years, but I'll keep it close at-hand in the years to come. Graves offers insightful and helpful strategies, guidelines, and tips to writing teachers. His advice is applicable to all students in all grade levels. I would highly recommend this book, especially to new teachers.

Format: Paperback
This book has a lot of great information, but the way in which it is presented is quite dull. It is just page after page of words. Nothing really jumps out and grabs the readers attention.
