  • The Quickwrite Handbook: 100 Mentor Texts to Jumpstart Your Students' Thinking and Writing

    Linda Rief

    Paperback (Heinemann, June 15, 2018)
    Helping students put words on a page can be hard enough. "I don't have anything to write about!" they say. And when writing does happen, how do you help them develop these ideas into more effective pieces? A powerful tool to jumpstart writing In The Quickwrite Handbook, master teacher Linda Rief shares 100 compelling mentor texts and shows how to use each one as a powerful tool for sparking successful writing. Each mentor text includes "Try this" suggestions for inviting students to get started. You'll also find "Interludes" woven throughout: examples of quickwrites that students crafted into more fully developed pieces. These mentor texts are curated in four categories: Seeing Inward: How do students view themselves? Leaning Outward: What do students consider when they step outside of themselves? Beyond Self: What do students notice and wonder about the world at large? Looking Back: How does reflection help students grow into more articulate, thoughtful citizens of the world? Quickwrites go beyond writing prompts The pages of this book champion Linda's wise words: "Quickwrites-writing to find writing-are a powerful teaching tool that help students find ideas, discover their voices, and build their confidence as they discover they have important things to say." Quickwrites are more than a set of formulaic prompts. They are opportunities for students to use another writer's words to stimulate their thinking and-through writing themselves-to discover a voice they didn't know they had.
