The Write Direction PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Write Direction free pdf The Write Direction is an innovative book that guides teachers on how to teach writing, including the connection to the writing students will encounter once they leave school. The book examines the importance of teacher as writer, classroom environment, writing process, and six traits of writing and how teachers can implement these concepts. The Write Direction connects classroom writing instruction to the world students will face once they leave school and enter the workplace. The authors believe that students need to explore and practice writing assignments that better prepare them for the writing they will undertake once they leave school. Unfortunately, many teachers do not know what types of writing employers in the business world expect their employees to be able to produce. Therefore, every chapter provides specific activities for teachers to undertake as they work to improve their writing instruction. Suggestions for incorporating appropriate writing assignments that connect to workplace writing are also included. The book also provides suggestions for managing the crucial issues facing new teachers in today's classroom: testing, grading, and long-range planning.
