This book is written for all teachers who wish to improve their students’ writing skills, regardless of subject area. Based on years of hands-on classroom experience and research, the authors break down the steps for both reading with understanding and writing with confidence: recognizing writing as a fundamental life skill; identifying all pre-writing considerations; visualizing the plan for an ABBC paragraph; expanding the process to an effective essay; and synthesizing information from multiple sources. The authors’ previous book, The Fives Strategy for Reading Comprehension (2016), guided educators through effective reading instruction. In this title the authors expand their technique to help students of all grades meet the standards for writing competence.
