2.0 out of 5 stars Improve the print 3 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback
The quality of this book was awful. The content may be ok (that I've yet to trial) but it has cheap pages, with cheap print so it's blurred and puts you off the book before you've started. If I'd seen in a shop I wouldn't have bought it regardless of actual content! Be warned

3.0 out of 5 stars Ideas for writing 27 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Disappointing after its rave review. Much of what is in it can be found elsewhere, so it's really not worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teaching Writing 4 Sep 2000
By Gina E Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this to be one of the most useful books for teaching writing skills. It is loaded with ideas that can be used in the classroom and can be used with teaching teachers how to teach writing skills. This book has some of the most creative and effective ideas I have seen in a long time. In fact I loaned it to someone about a year ago and have not seen it since. This demonstrates its quality. It is an easy read with samples that one can use in class forever. I recommend it highly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure if meant for parents 20 Sep 2011
By cryptcrank - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a parent, and using this book to teach my 4th grader. Contents do not drive step-by-step learning process, it rather felt like an instruction book for grade teachers.

If I knew how to teach writing, then I could use this book to know different techniques and material to improve.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good "Starter" Book 26 Jan 2006
By James Charnock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is not an in-depth, philosophical treatment of writing (though some may say the author accomplishes it indirectly), but an example after example fun activity tool for teachers--sprinkled with nuggets of wisdom throughout. For those who find such things useful (I don't necessarily) this latest edition includes rubrics, portfolio assessment, and writing across the curriculum. Even if you find only a small portion helpful, the purchase is worth the price. Suitable for primary through middle school.
