Rozlyn Linder: Showing Students The Possibilities

The Big Book of Details supports planning and on-the-go teaching for one-on-one conferences, whole-class instruction, or commercial writing programs. Its lessons are organized to help kids understand each move quickly. In this week's video from author Rozlyn Linder, she calls for the need for teacher sensitivity around students' knowledge of details and elaboration.
