Full Description

The Reading Strategies Book made the New York Times Best Seller List by making it simpler to match students’ needs to high-quality instruction. Now, in The Writing Strategies Book, Jen Serravallo does the same, collecting 300 of the most effective strategies to share with writers, and grouping them beneath 10 crucial goals.

“You can think of the goals as the what, “writes Jen, “and the strategies as the how.” From composing with pictures all the way to conventions and beyond, you’ll have just-right teaching, just in time. With Jen’s help you’ll:

  • develop individual goals for every writer
  • give students step-by-step strategies for writing with skill and craft
  • coach writers using prompts aligned to a strategy
  • present mentor texts that support a genre and strategy
  • adjust instruction to meet individual needs with Jen’s Teaching Tips
  • demonstrate and explain a writing move with her Lesson Language
  • learn more with Hat Tips to the work of influential teacher–authors.

She even offers suggestions for stocking your writing center, planning units of study, celebrating student writing, and keeping records.

Whether you use Writing Workshop, 6+1 Traits, Daily 5’s “Work on Writing,” a scripted writing program, the writing exercises in your basal, or any other approach, you’ll discover a treasure chest of ways to work with whole classes, small groups, or individual writers.

“I am convinced that helping kids to articulate clear goals for their work,” writes Jen Serravallo, “and supporting them with strategies and feedback to accomplish those goals, makes a huge difference.” With The Writing Strategies Book you can make that kind of difference with your writers every day.

The Reading Strategies Book 2.0 is designed to be a trusted, research-aligned companion for any K–8 reading classroom—no matter your curriculum, subject area, or instructional approach. Connect crucial research to powerful practice, whether you need engaging lessons for whole-class teaching, support for small-group instruction, ideas for intervention, or ways to fill gaps in a core curriculum. The friendly design makes it easy to find strategies that meet every student where they are now.

Evidence-based, responsive instruction made easier.
