Grades K-2 About the Authors is about the littlest authors-those in kindergarten through second grade. Based on a profound understanding of the ways in which young children learn, it shows teachers how to launch a writing workshop by inviting children to do what they do naturally-make stuff. So why not write books? Gifted educator and author of the best-selling What You Know by Heart (Heinemann, 2002), Katie Wood Ray has seen young authors do just that. And she wants your students to be able to do the same. Beautifully describing young children in the act of learning, she demonstrates what it takes to nourish writing right from the start: a supportive environment that enables even the youngest students to write respect and sensitivity to the way children really learn inviting instruction that both encourages and elevates young writers rich language that stimulates writing classroom talk and children's literature that energize young writers developmental considerations that shape the structure of the workshop, making it natural, joyful, and absolutely appropriate. What's more, Ray explains step by step how to set up and maintain a primary writing workshop, detailing eleven units of study that cover idea generation, text structures, different genres, and illustrations that work with text. She also draws on data, projects, and the language of teaching used in the classroom of first-grade teacher Lisa Cleaveland. Ray allows readers to "listen in" to Lisa as she helps her young students learn from professional writers, work with intention, and think about their own process. Chockfull of examples of little books by young children, About the Authors is proof positive that a primary writing workshop is a smart writing move.

"My hope is that More About the Authors will help you see how shifting your thinking about mentors can make such a difference in your teaching." -Lisa Cleaveland This is not your typical book on mentor texts. Lisa Cleaveland will show you why in her classroom authors and illustrators do the mentoring, not their texts. While this may seem like mere semantics, it's actually a singularly powerful instructional shift. "Books don't make themselves," writes Lisa, "authors and illustrators do, and my students know this because they make books too." About the Authors introduced tens of thousands of teachers to Lisa's primary writing workshop. Now she shares what she considers the most crucial aspect of her teaching. "When authors and illustrators are mentors, you teach students more about how to learn from their mentors than what to learn." With Lisa you'll: engage children by helping them discover mentor authors connect writers to the curriculum as they notice and name the moves their mentors make plan powerful units of study around mentor authors position students to mentor one another. Along the way, Lisa illustrates the effectiveness of this approach with full-color examples of students' work as well as transcripts of a question-and-answer session between her writers and famed children's author and illustrator Marla Frazee. You'll see firsthand how closely examining a mentor's work can lead little ones to big insights about writing. "What I have realized," writes Lisa Cleaveland, "is that it's all about finding mentors for writing and illustrating." Find out just how powerful this slight shift in thinking can be as you find out More About the Authors.
