Balanced writing instruction that focuses on both process and product
Teaching Writing: Balancing Process and Product offers a comprehensive vision of the strategies that writers use, the writing genres, and the writer’s craft, along with techniques for improving the quality of students’ writing. Authentic classroom artifacts, minilessons, and day-to-day teaching strategies are integrated throughout the text to guide pre-service teachers in their learning and offer applied examples.

The 7th Edition continues to thoroughly examine genres and instructional procedures with a strong focus on scaffolding instruction to ensure success for all students, including English learners and struggling writers. Comprehensive coverage of both process and product—along with valuable insights on differentiation, technology, assessment, writing to demonstrate learning, and the six traits of writing—offers pre-service teachers the best possible preparation for teaching writing in K–8 classrooms.
