Kelly shares a number of classroom-tested strategies that enable teachers to:

understand the importance of teaching writing;
motivate young writers;
see the importance modeling plays in building young writers (modeling from both the teacher and from real-world text);
understand how providing choice elevates adolescent writing (and how to allow for choice within a rigorous curriculum);
help students recognize the importance of purpose and audience;
assess essays in ways that drive better writing performance.
Infused with humor and illuminating anecdotes, Kelly draws on his classroom experiences and work as co-director of a regional writing project to offer teachers both practical ways to incorporate writing instruction into their day and compelling reasons to do so.
