Read full description of the books:Middle schoolers can be the masters of disengagement. Recognizing that all students, adept and struggling writers alike, lose steam at times and need a revitalizing jump start, Christopher Lehman offers effective, developmentally-appropriate fixes for addressing situations that frequently sidetrack or distract adolescent writers.
Organized as a practical on-the-go teaching reference, the first four chapters offer strategies for counteracting commonplace situations that can regularly spring up and disengage middle school writers such as:
writers who seem to have an almost "allergic" reaction to the writing process writers who "cannot possibly find anything to write about" writers who "talk, talk, talk the writing time away" writers who need constant approval before moving on. The final chapter offers an inquiry-based study guide that supports teachers in collaborating on and customizing strategies for reviving the disengaged writers in their learning communities.
A Quick Guide to Reviving Disengaged Writers is part of the Workshop Help Desk series.
