Ask successful writers and they'll tell you, the key to writing well is revision. Ask elementary school teachers and they'll tell you, the real challenge of writing instruction is teaching kids how to revise. Ruth Culham is both a successful writer and a writing teacher, and she's discovered how to teach writing and revision in a way that's accessible to both teacher and students: First read the writing, assess it using the traits of writing, then teach the writers and guide revision decisions using traits as a common language and map. This book shows you how to assess and teach writing in a way that's practical and doable--and best of all, see results. Part 1 walks you through the traits of writing and their key qualities, showing step by step how to read students' writing and offer feedback that nudges them forward through the revision process. Chapters will help you address challenges students face within each mode of writing (narrative, expository, persuasive), and provide tools young writers can use to evaluate their own writing and make revision decisions accordingly. Part 2 dives into instruction, offering specific guidance for how to use what you've learned from reading student writing to design lessons that scaffold students toward making their own craft decisions and revisions. In addition, there's an entire chapter devoted to mentor texts that you can use to model traits and key qualities for your students.

Though you may sense a disconnect between student-centered teaching and rubric-based assessment, you may still use rubrics for convenience or for want of better alternatives. Rethinking Rubrics in Writing Assessment gives you the impetus to make a change, demonstrating how rubrics can hurt kids and replace professional decision making with an inauthentic pigeonholing that stamps standardization onto a notably nonstandard process. With an emphasis on thoughtful planning and teaching, Wilson shows you how to reconsider writing assessment so that it aligns more closely with high-quality instruction and avoids the potentially damaging effects of rubrics.

In einem Pariser Bus der Linie S beschimpft ein junger Mann mit Hut einen älteren Herrn, setzt sich dann auf einen freien Platz und taucht zwei Stunden später an der Gare Saint-Lazare wieder auf, wo einer ihm sagt, sein Überzieher habe einen Knopf zu wenig. Die Stilübungen bilden das Kunststück, diese Alltagsepisode in über hundert Varianten zu präsentieren – ob als Komödie, Sonett, Haiku, Traum, Amtsschreiben oder Verhör, in Alexandrinern oder Jugendstil, ob kulinarisch, mengenmathematisch, lautmalerisch, weiblich oder reaktionär. Raymond Queneaus populärer Klassiker ist ein fintenreiches erkenntnistheoretisches Sprachspiel und ein überbordendes Lesevergnügen. Ein geradezu diabolisch hintersinniges Buch.

Mitreißend und tief bewegend: David Levithans neues Meisterwerk »Harry küsst Craig und spürt etwas, das größer ist als sie beide, etwas, das über den Kuss hinausreicht. Er greift nicht danach – noch nicht. Aber er weiß, dass es da ist. Und damit wird dieser Kuss anders als all ihre anderen Küsse zuvor. Das weiß er sofort.« Craig und Harry wollen ein Zeichen für alle schwulen Jungs setzen. Dafür küssen sie sich. 32 Stunden, 12 Minuten und 10 Sekunden. So lange dauert es, um den Weltrekord im Langzeitküssen zu brechen. So lange dauert es, sich über die Gefühle füreinander klarzuwerden, nachdem man sich doch eigentlich gerade getrennt hat. So lange dauert es, das Leben aller schwulen Pärchen in der Umgebung für immer zu verändern ... Geschickt verwebt David Levithan all ihre Geschichten zu einer großen Geschichte über homosexuelle Jugendliche von heute. Vor allem aber beschreibt er in poetischen Worten die Liebe in all ihren Facetten.
