Teaching Adolescent Writers by Kelly Gallagher.

In an increasingly demanding world of literacy, it has become critical that students know how to write effectively. From the requirements of standardized tests to those of the wired workplace, the ability to write well, once a luxury, has become a necessity. Many students are leaving school without the necessary writing practice and skills needed to compete in a complex and fast-moving Information Age.

The author shares his classroom experiences incorporating humor anecdotes and well illustrated examples of how to teach writing to teens. Learn about the writing reasons guided by Ms. Janice highlights.
