Above and beyond the writing workshop, Shelley Harwayne

Summary
"This book seeks to reinvigorate the teaching of writing by harkening back to the original principles of the writing workshop, offering teachers a meaningful way to teach children how to write with enthusiasm and expertise. The author argues that we must focus again on genuine curiosity, individual choice, big blocks of time, quality conversations, and powerful children's literature"--, Provided by publisher
