This past summer I was part of a book study with my friends in Literacy Land for the book From Striving to Thriving. This book really made me think about how we can really make interventions work better for all students. Recently I was contacted by Scholastic to read and review another game-changing book for the language arts block - From Striving to Thriving Writers:  Strategies That Jump-Start Writing.

In my undergrad classwork, we studied the art of writing through Lucy Calkins. I read the book, and I knew what had to be done to make students become good writers. Once I was in the classroom, I had no clue how to make good writers out of the students I had. I needed some help and fast.

Fast forward 20 years, and I now have something in my hands that will help me teach students how to write, no matter their current level. Sara Holbrook, Michael Salinger, and Stephanie Harvey help educators of all levels teach their students how to write through frameworks.

The framework model gives striving writers a place to start, something many of them need. Mentor texts are great, but most students need more guidance than a simple reading of a mentor text. These frameworks help educators work with students through all parts of the writing process and guide them to become thriving writers.

From Striving to Thriving Writers includes frameworks for every aspect of the writing process. And with the online component, the reader has access to all of the slides to help teach those frameworks to students. Lessons are lined up for you, and the reproducibles are available to the readers as well.
