This engaging text offers everything future teachers need to know in order to implement interactive writing in primary classrooms. After early coverage of the theory and implementation of interactive writing, the text offers dozens of lessons that are ideal for sparking the interest of emergent, early, and challenged writers. Each strategy is accompanied by a description of why and how it improves writing, step-by-step implementation ideas, relevant student artifacts, and an easy-to-use chart of teacher guidelines. This collection of teachers' expriences clearly illustrate how important tasks such as phonemic awareness, phonics, print awareness, and vocabulary can be incorporated into interactive writing lessons; how to use this system with ESL learners; and how to adapt it to meet individual learners' specific needs.
