7 Easy Steps to Empower Student Writers -- Book Study


I am teaming up with An Apple for the Teacher and a group of teachers to focus on empowering student writers with this amazing The Writing Strategies Book study by Jennifer Serravallo.  Jennifer includes 300 strategies that will help our students develop their writing skills.

List of Strategies

I am very excited to be a part of this study, and I hope you will join me.  You can purchase the The Writing Strategies Book on Amazon and join in.  The study will begin April 6 and Kelly Malloy, from An Apple for the Teacher has all the information.

I have to confess that even though I have been planning to be part of this book study for a month, I still spaced, and did not order the book until today. Lucky for me, Amazon has FREE same day service on this book if you are a Prime member, so I will get the book today.  How cool is that?  I can't wait to get started!
