Just in time for your fall book list, a new writing-focused Scholastic Professional title is here!
Scholastic Professional has released a new book for educators of striving writers in grades K–8. Literacy specialist and best-selling author Stephanie Harvey teams up with writing experts Sara Holbrook and Michael Salinger for From Striving to Thriving Writers: Strategies That Jump-Start Writing.
In this book, the authors outline 27 easy-to-teach frameworks that scaffold purposeful K–8 student writing and support effective written communication across genre and disciplines.
The frameworks are dynamic, flexible scaffolds that help educators guide students as they work together to harness the power of language, engage in voluminous writing, and immerse themselves in the process of reading, discussion, partner research, composition, re-reading, revision, and sharing to build content knowledge and communication skills. Throughout the writing process, students are encouraged to participate in conversation. The frameworks are also paired with formative rubrics, allowing educators to easily assess student’s skills.
This is the second book in the From Striving to Thriving series.
