Full Description

Twenty years after Don Graves first guided you to new, more effective, and more professionally satisfying practices, Heinemann celebrates his continuing influence with a special Twentieth-Anniversary Edition of Writing, the book that revolutionized writing instruction.

"Children still want to write—if we let them. These words are just as true now as they were twenty years ago," writes the master educator-researcher. In his new preface to his landmark book, Graves deepens your understanding of Writing's importance as he assesses its impact. Also new to this edition is an afterword by Mary Ellen Giacobbe who recounts not only the transformation that Graves' research made in her classroom, but also his ongoing influence on her own literacy research.

And, of course, there's the classic text itself, a touchstone for all writing and literacy teaching. Writing establishes the crucial, reflexive relationship between reading and writing. Plus it gives you the tools you need to incorporate writing into your daily lesson planning by taking you inside real classrooms to watch as children work with their teachers to build literacy skills. Filled with inspiring, straightforward prose and backed by extensive classroom research, Writing not only launched an education revolution, it also began a twenty-year mentorship between Graves and hundreds of thousands of teachers looking for ways to improve their practice and their students' education.

For 20 years Don Graves has guided you in developing a lifelong love of writing and reading in your students. Now join Heinemann in celebrating his lasting achievement with Writing: Teachers & Children at Work, Twentieth-Anniversary Edition.
