div p If you want to learn how to shoot a basketball you begin by carefully observing someone who knows how to shoot a basketball If you want to be a writer you begin by carefully observing the work of accomplished writers Recognizing the importance that modeling plays in the learning process high school English teacher Kelly Gallagher shares how he gets his students to stand next to and pay close attention to model writers and how doing so elevates his students writing abilities i Write Like This i is built around a central premise if students are to grow as writers they need to read good writing they need to study good writing and most important they need to emulate good writers p p In i Write Like This i Kelly emphasizes real world writing purposes the kind of writing he wants his students to be doing twenty years from now Each chapter focuses on a specific discourse express and reflect inform and explain evaluate and judge inquire and explore analyze and interpret and take a stand propose a solution In teaching these lessons Kelly provides mentor texts professional samples as well as models he has written in front of his students student writing samples and numerous assignments and strategies proven to elevate student writing p p By helping teachers bring effective modeling practices into their classrooms i Write Like This i enables students to become better adolescent writers More important the practices found in this book will help our students develop the writing skills they will need to become adult writers in the real world p div, How can we teach today s students to write with clarity passion and purpose How can we move all students even those who struggle or are reluctant forward in their skills as writers In i Improving Adolescent Writers i Kelly Gallagher invites you into his classroom for an in depth look at ways to successfully answer these questions and more Through a variety of methods modeling mid process assessment small group conferring grammar and editing mini lessons revision techniques and identifying the many real world purposes for writing Kelly demonstrates how to teach writing so that adolescents internalize the habits and skills of good writers Along the way they learn that writing is messy hard work but well worth the struggle and effort They become more than better writers ultimately they become better thinkers br The DVD features three programs The Importance of Modeling Writing with Purpose and Assessment That Drives Better Student Writing br br, When Kelly Gallagher learned that his ninth grade students could not name the vice president of the United States and when two seniors asked him in all seriousness Who is this guy Al Qaeda Kelly was shocked into realizing he needed to do something outside the standard curriculum to build his students background knowledge In response he developed the Article of the Week activity to address the serious gaps in his students education br br Each week students read a short article that informs them about the world Students highlight passages and words they don t understand consider the author s purpose and intended audience and work through any confusion The class then discusses how the structure and craft of the article informs reader comprehension and how they can implement these elements into their own writing br br In minutes Kelly shows teachers how to integrate the Article of the Week into their own classrooms in a manner that provides the background knowledge that is the foundation for critical reading, What is in the best interest of our students Is it teaching to the newest standards movement like the Common Core Teaching that prepares students to take a test Or is it something more meaningful and authentic br In his new book i In the Best Interest of Students i Kelly Gallagher notes that there are real strengths in the Common Core standards and there are significant weaknesses as well He takes the long view reminding us that standards come and go but what remains constant is the need to stay true to what we know works in the teaching of reading writing speaking and listening Instead of blindly adhering to the latest standards movement Kelly advocates br br Dialing up the amount of reading and writing students are doing br Balancing rigorous high quality literature and non fiction with high interest student selected titles br Giving students much more choice when it comes to reading and writing activities br Encouraging readers to deepen their comprehension by moving beyond the four corners of the text br Using modeling to enrich students writing skills in the prewriting drafting and revision stages br Helping young writers to achieve more authenticity through the blending of genres br Resisting the de emphasis of narrative and imaginative reading and writing br Providing students with more opportunities to sharpen their listening and speaking skills br Planning lessons that move beyond Common Core expectations br br In this provocative and insightful new book Kelly surveys the teaching landscape since the publication of his highly regarded book i Readicide i and finds that although some progress has been made more needs to be done Amid the frenzy of trying to teach to a new set of standards Kelly Gallagher is a strong voice of reason reminding us that instruction should be anchored around one guiding question What is in the best interest of our students
