Teaching Writing at the Secondary Level


We take great pride in announcing the publication of our newest book, Teaching Writing at the Secondary Level: Strategies for Improving Literacy Across the Curriculum. Today’s curriculum standards and assessments require that secondary teachers implement writing assignments as an integral part of their instruction. This manual has been designed to provide practical, time-efficient, and meaningful writing activities in science, math, social studies and English. The book’s contents provide lessons, strategies, and organizers to support writing to learn theory.

Many years of research and field-testing have contributed to the completion of this unique teacher resource. The decision to publish this book was in response to the enthusiastic feedback from teachers who have used our strategies in their university courses, workshops, and in in-service trainings over the past 28 years. The result of our efforts is a comprehensive manual that will make writing a powerful tool for learning in the secondary classroom.
