Teaching Writing to Children: Narrative and Descriptive Writing
Teaching Writing to Children is really a general course that will give you ways to get your kids writing right away. Specific topics include two of the four basic writing genres: narration (all children love to tell stories!) and description (adding detail to their writing will help students' work come alive).
Are you an elementary grade teacher looking for some ideas for teaching writing to your class? Are you a new teacher, just getting started and hoping to add some ideas to your "bag of tricks?" Are you a homeschool parent wanting to enhance the writing skills that you are teaching your child? Or are you someone who just loves kids and writing? If so, this book is for you.
This is a hands-on, low tech course that is written for grades 3-6, but the ideas can be adapted for any grade level. This is an old-fashioned pen and paper writing course. There are no computer games, word processing exercises, or information on screen-based writing, though any of the exercises can be converted to use on computers, iPads or other technology. Just be sure that your students focus on their writing, and not on the pretty fonts and other formatting that can be added after their ideas are set.
