This practical and thoughtful resource is a follow up to the ground-breaking Reading Power books, which feature simple strategies for helping students focus on their "thinking" while they read. Teachers already familiar with these books will find this a simple way to link reading and writing instruction. Using the same five thinking strategies -- Connect, Question, Visualize, Infer, and Transform -- young writers will learn how to engage their readers' thinking through their writing.

Writing Power will guide teachers through a series of lessons focusing on each of the strategies. A wide range of effective writing techniques are outlined and reinforced throughout the book, with suggested "anchor books" for each lesson. The fundamentals of the writing process and the "6 Traits" are integrated into this unique examination of how developing an awareness of the readers' thinking can influence and affect a student's ability to write.

Adrienne Gear has been teaching in Vancouver, BC, for more than 25 years. She continues to stay grounded in the classroom, as well as providing workshops, demonstration lessons, and leadership training to teachers across Canada.
