Teaching a child to read and write is one of the fundamental missions of any private or public school. Now in a newly revised and expanded second edition, "Teaching The Story: Fiction Writing In Grades 4-8" features twenty new lessons, each of which infuse technology into the writing process. Ideal for use with reluctant writers by including wikis, digital media, podcasts, and other electronic media resources, "Teaching The Story" offers a compendium of 'classroom friendly' mini-lessons to teach children critical craft elements of writing short fiction, employing critical-thinking skills, and transfer those skills into informational writing, as well as writing in the genres of science fiction, fantasy, history, sports, and mystery. Enhanced with the inclusion of a CD with more than 70 reproducibles and customizable transparency masters, student written samples, and a how-to reference guide on implementing technology in the classroom setting, "Teaching The Story" is a strongly recommended addition to professional and curriculum supplement writing instruction reference materials collections.
