  1. Making Nonfiction from Scratch

    Do you have students whose nonfiction writing is formulaic, devoid of energy and voice? Skilled nonfiction writers draw on strategies, techniques and craft found in other genres: poetry, comedy, even mystery. Without those elements, nonfiction would be dry and dull. In Making Nonfiction from Scratch, professional development and children's book author Ralph Fletcher offers a candid critique of how nonfiction writing is often taught in schools and gives teachers the inspiration and strategies they need to help their students write authentic nonfiction. Ralph emphasises the power of choice, mentor texts and nonfiction read-alouds in making nonfiction an everyday part of classrooms.

  2. Doing Literary Criticism: Helping Students Engage with Challenging Texts

    One of the greatest challenges for English teachers today is the call to engage student in more complex texts. Tim Gillespie, who has taught in public schools for almost four decades, has found the lenses of literacy criticism a powerful tool for helping students tackle challenging literary texts. Doing Literary Criticism gives each theory its own chapter with a brief, teacher-friendly overview and a history of the approach, along with an in-depth discussion of its benefits and limitations. Each chapter also includes ideas for classroom practices and activities. Using stories from his own English classes Tim provides a wealth of specific classroom-tested suggestions for discussion, essay and research topics, recommended texts, exam questions and more.
