As Harper points out, writing is a superpower of the twenty-first century. If we want our children to flourish long-term, we must teach them to write. I am grateful that in this book I'm given a host of fresh ideas for getting my students writing purposefully and often. I'll keep this one very close to my planning desk.
You will want to have a full stack of sticky notes when you open up this book. It is full of practical strategies that will add not only purpose across your academic days, but also play, laughter, and fun. Combining humor and wisdom, Harper weaves in lessons and reminders about the different ways people write across platforms and genres. She moves from solid rationale to practical tactics, providing differentiation through modifications and extensions.
From quick writing strategies to summarizing techniques to vocabulary building to digital writing invitations, Write On & Write Now provides practical yet savvy strategies for any teacher who wants to increase student writing volume without sacrificing space in an already crowded curriculum.
Rebecca Harper’s book Write On & Write Now: 37 Strategies for Authentic Daily Writing is a gift to students and teachers in ELA and content classes. What Harper does will surely resonate with teachers: she offers writing suggestions that can easily be integrated into units of study across the curriculum. She’s organized the chapters around daily writing students should and can do: writing summaries, learning academic vocabulary, and digital writing, writing to share text evidence.
Content-area teachers are asked to incorporate writing as a regular, often daily, practice. While that is obviously a good idea, what does such writing look like--and how much time will it take out of an already jam-packed curriculum? Harper clearly pondered those questions and then created quick and accessible ways to help teachers find the answers. Grab this book, take a look at the “Write Now and Write On” strategies on the first few pages, turn to the corresponding chapters, and watch your students happily (no kidding!) begin writing.
