Teaching Writing Strategies that Engage Thinking (by Adrienne Gear)

"Writing Power is a practical and thoughtful resource that shows teachers how to encourage students to consider the reader's thinking as they write. Using the same five thinking strategies from Adrienne Gear's groundbreaking Reading Power books—Connect, Question, Visualize, Infer, and Transform—young writers will learn how to engage and invite their readers' thinking through their writing. Writing Power guides teachers through a series of lessons focusing on each of the strategies and includes scripted, sequential lessons, recommended anchor books, reproducibles, and assessment rubrics."
