Texts and Lessons for Content-Area Writing: Using Writing


Content-area teachers, rejoice once again: Harvey “Smokey” Daniels and Nancy Steineke bring you the companion volume to their ever popular Texts & Lessons for Content-Area Reading—this time helping students “write to learn,” using powerful writing and thinking strategies that get students engaged in your content and prepare them for academic writing, but don’t increase your workload.

In this first video previewing the authors' work, Smokey and Nancy talk about the uses of writing and how it's a great way to help students remember new knowledge.


Texts and Lessons for Content-Area Writing will release in April. Learn more here.
