A comprehensive approach to teaching writing that deals not only with style, but with the writer's inspiration and the tools and strategies that young writers need to write well. The book includes a series of rich, engaging writing prompts that teachers can use to help even the most mechanical writer begin to write with pizzazz and flair. The Write Voice is organized around seven strategies with appropriate prompts to help students seek and recognize inspiration.
The book illustrates countless effective ways students can experiment with their own writers' voice, engage in dialogue about their writing and the writing of their peers, and set personal goals as writers. It also addresses the importance of mentoring, setting success criteria, and consistent and ongoing peer and teacher feedback.
