Recommended for: All teachers of writing, grds 8--College
Read from June 06 to August 05, 2010 — I own a copy, read count: 1

Reading this book got me back in touch with what drove me as an English major and helped me see that experience (over 20 years ago, now) in a way that will be easy for my high school and middle school students to understand. Additionally, as a teacher of teachers, I've new insights into the process of writing essays and research papers that can only help me in my college/prof. development classroom.

As a veteran of Bard College's Institute for Writing and Thinking, I'm intimately familiar with the mindset Cioffi brings to the process of writing (he is a faculty member of the IWT). I highly recommend this book to all teachers of writing, but only after your tackle Peter Elbow's Writing with Power, and Teresa Villardi and Mary Chang (eds.) Writing Based Teaching.
