• Our current book club is reading "The Writing Strategies Book" by Jennifer Serravallo. This book is a collection of writing strategy lessons that are ready to use on a moments notice. These lessons can be used as workshop mini-lessons, during small group instruction, or one-on-one conferring. The members of this book club have committed to matching strategy lessons to student needs, teaching those lessons, and coming to book club ready to share the successes and challenges they faced. We have also committed to identifying individual students who would benefit from use of a targeted strategy over a period of time. We are looking forward to analyzing that data to see how regular use of a targeted strategy makes a difference in a child's writing life.
