Real-World Writers shows teachers how they can teach their pupils to write well and with pleasure, purpose and power. It demonstrates how classrooms can be transformed into genuine communities of writers where talking, reading, writing and sharing give children confidence, motivation and a sense of the relevance writing has to their own lives and learning. Based on their practical experience and what research says is the most effective practice, the authors share detailed guidance on how teachers can provide writing study lessons drawing on what real writers do and how to teach grammar effectively. They also share a variety of authentic class writing projects with accompanying teacher notes that will encourage children to use genres appropriately, creatively and flexibly. The authors’ simple yet comprehensive approach includes how to teach the processes and craft knowledge involved in creating successful and meaningful texts. This book is invaluable for all primary practitioners who wish to teach writing for real.

How can a centrifuge be used to reverse male-pattern baldness? Do whales experience the passage of time at a faster rate than surface-dwellers? And why does Garfield hate Mondays -- he doesn't even have a job! The answers to these and literally dozens of other questions are found in this hilarious collection of conversations between Kris Straub and David Malki !, the hosts of Tweet Me Harder, the world's first, best, only, and last talkback-enabled interactive audio podblast. This first volume collects Episodes 1-10 of the popular podblast -- an iTunes staff favorite -- and adds annotations, illustrations and indexing for rapid reference. Never wonder again how many grappling-hooks it takes to brake a car, or whether Minnie Mouse was coming on to you back in the nineties, or who won the rap battle with Fake Stan Lee: all the answers are here in the book. iTunes listener reviews of Tweet Me Harder: "A dadaist masterpiece, Tweet Me Harder provides the driest wit and humor this side of the Atlantic Ocean." "[Kris and David have a] trademark ability to craft a tangential 20-minute conversation on absolutely any topic on a dime that's not only informed and weird, but entertaining." "When Kris and David get off on a jag on some ludicrous entrepreneurial idea, whether about wind-tunnel-based hair-replacement systems, variable-configuration clothing maintained by spiders, or simply a special radio to talk to schizophrenics -- this show is golden."

When a frightened girl and boy arrive on the Twiss family's doorstep to escape the Blitz, Charlotte wonders how she will keep her war guests from missing their parents back home, or from cowering every time a plane flies overhead. Though the war is being waged across the Atlantic, Charlotte begins to feel its danger, as her brother George defies their parents and enlists in the Navy. After months of receiving letters from overseas, suddenly there is no word from him -- has the unthinkable happened and George's ship been sunk by a German submarine? Charlotte Twiss's diary shows her innermost feelings about her life on the Canadian homefront, as she helps her war guests "settle in" and wonders whether her brother is safe from harm.

Grounded in theory and best-practices research, this practical text provides teachers with 40 strategies for using fiction and non-fiction trade books to teach in five key content areas: language arts and reading, social studies, mathematics, science, and the arts. Each strategy provides everything a teacher needs to get started: a classroom example that models the strategy, a research-based rationale, relevant content standards, suggested books, reader-response questions and prompts, assessment ideas, examples of how to adapt the strategy for different grade levels (K–2, 3–5, and 6–8), and ideas for differentiating instruction for English language learners and struggling students. Throughout the book, student work samples and classroom vignettes bring the content to life.
