What is included with this book?


Before actual writing occurs, writers prepare. With these words, award-winning children’s author David Harrison affirms the importance of teaching students the necessary steps of prewriting—from choosing a viable topic to conducting in-depth research to taking effective notes and organizing them. In this book David offers insights into his prewriting process, while educator Mary Jo Fresch translates his methods into engaging lessons that develop students’ research skills to enhance their writing.
