In his role as a literacy coordinator and teacher, Mark Overmeyer has heard the same issues raised again and again by both new and experienced colleagues. When Writing Workshop Isn't Working provides practical advice to overcome these common problems and get your writing workshop back on track. Ackwledging the process-based nature of the writing workshop, Mark does t offer formulaic, program-based, one-size-fitsall answers; rather, he presents multiple suggestions based on what works in real classrooms. The ten key questions this book addresses include:
How do I help students who don't kw what to write about?
How do I help students develop stronger vocabulary and word choice?
How do I prepare my students for standardized tests without compromising my writing program?
How should I assess student writing?
How can I help my students use revision effectively?
