Conferring can be a murky and messy process. Conferring with Young Writers is based on the Òthree FsÓ: frequency, focus, and follow-up. It presents a classroom management system that offers routine and structure for giving the most effective feedback in a writing conference. This book will help both teachers and students learn to break down and utilize the qualities that enable good writing: elaboration, voice, structure, conventions, and focus. The authors also provide the knowledge and skills it takes to confer well, which will help you improve as a writing teacher and give your students the confidence to think of themselves as writers.
