Even our youngest writers can consider audience and purpose as they use nonfiction writing to document their ideas and share those ideas with others. But if students are going to be able to use writing to learn, they must have opportunities for learning to write. The forty mini-lessons in this remarkable book offer strategies for writing informational, persuasive, and procedural text. Each lesson starts with a learning goal and follows an "I do, We do, You do" format. Teachers will find a wealth of ideas for guiding young students to write on what they know and care about.
