Book Description:
Middle and high school writing is not pointless! From one of the most respected writing professors in America, this book combines the insight affective for writing with writing as a learning tool in all content areas. Prompted by the 'near total neglect of writing' in content areas outside English, Bill Strong explores and answers the question 'why writing matters.' At a time when more emphasis is being placed on middle and secondary students and when writing tests have been added to the new ACT and SAT assessments, Write for Insight is ideal for teachers seeking a flexible and inspiring way to increase students' motivation and to enhance long term learning. Arguing that writing is a powerful learning tool in all content areas, Strong utilizes note taking, drawing, summarizing, brainstorming, and metaphor building to help students collect notes, plan future action, frame questions, monitor their own learning, and engage in a rich array of imaginative and cognitive tasks. Written by a masterful teacher for teachers, the friendly, thought provoking style is appropriate for teachers in diverse disciplines.
