How to Teach Fiction Writing at Key Stage 3 is a practical manual to help teachers of 11-14 year-olds to develop effective modeling and scaffolding strategies for the teaching of narrative writing. Using a step-by-step approach, based on the 'word/sentence/text level' convention, the book shows how teachers can help pupils to build work in various genres and to move out from these to more complex writing. Each section has a workshop approach that leads into a narrative writing activity, giving pupils the chance to complete a fully realized piece of work at the end each time. The workshops focus on genre features, the craft of the writer, and specific year-related needs (taken from the KS3 Framework). The book has a clear progression through KS3, and extension and support activities for the most and least able pupils are provided as an integral part of each section.

In the spirit of Studs Terkel's Working, Bill Smoot interviews master teachers in fields ranging from K--12 and higher education to the arts, trades and professions, sports, and politics. The result suggests a dinner party where the most fascinating teachers in America discuss their various styles as well as what makes their work meaningful to them. What is it that passes between the best teachers and their students to make learning happen? What are the keys to teaching the joys of literature, shooting a basketball, alligator wrestling, or how to survive one's first year in the U.S. Congress? Smoot's insightful questions elicit thought-provoking reflections about teaching as a calling and its aims, frustrations, and satisfactions.
