This timely revision starts with an inclusive definition of writing and suggests simple ways to introduce students to the purpose of writing. It discusses the key relationship between reading and writing, and the importance of oral language in building strong writers. Based on the work of real K–2 students, the book shows teachers how to interpret student work, identify what they know, and build naturally on the strengths their work displays. It argues for consistent teaching that includes a delicate balance between direct instruction and independent learning.
