In Lessons That Change Writers, Nancie has narrowed and deepened her conversation with teachers, to focus on the minilesson as a vehicle for helping students improve their writing. She shares over a hundred of these writing lessons which are described by her students as "the best of the best." The lessons fall into the following four categories that provide the structure for this book: Lessons about Topics: ways to develop ideas for pieces of writing that will matter to writers and to their readers Lessons about Principles of Writing: ways to think and write deliberately to create literature Lessons about Genre: in which we observe and name the ways that good free verse poems, formatted poetry, essays, short stories, memoirs, thank-you letters, profiles, parodies, and book reviews work and Lessons about Conventions: what readers' eyes and minds have been trained to expect, and how marks and forms function to give writing more voice and power and to make reading predictable and easy.

"There are steps teachers and administrators can take-tweaks, if you will-that make a classroom or school a place that's safe for children, one where every student feels noticed and known, one that challenges kids and entices them with the intrinsic rewards of real work done well." -Nancie Atwell Since 1990, Nancie Atwell and the faculty of the K-8 Center for Teaching and Learning have charged themselves with a mission. "Our job is to innovate for the good of children," Nancie writes, "and then to pass along to other teachers the lessons we learn about instruction that makes a difference." Systems to Transform Your Classroom and School makes CTL's powerful innovations accessible to every teacher and administrator. Nancie and her colleagues have created a culture of engagement and excellence by combining smart practices and policies with rich, community-building traditions and rituals. Systems to Transform Your Classroom and School introduces essential practices such as CTL's: daily morning meetings student-generated bill of rights school-wide "You can't say you can't play" rule outreach to parents spiraling K-8 curriculum in science and history student-and teacher-self-assessment and goal-setting student-led evaluation conferences systems for school and classroom management workshop approaches to teaching math, reading, and writing-including warmups, mini-lessons, conferences, and rigorous yet kid-friendly expectations based on the research and experience of a faculty of master teachers. Nancie invites you to: reflect on your own practice and goals view CTL's systems at work on the accompanying DVD read about her school's solutions to common problems of teaching access resources-forms, guidelines, and protocols-developed by the CTL faculty. "If we want students to feel a sense of belonging to something that's bigger than they are," Nancie observes, "it's essential that their teachers feel that way, too." Join your own colleagues, along with long-distance colleagues at the Center for Teaching and Learning, to discover how Systems to Transform Your Classroom and School can help turn your teaching ideals into a practical, successful reality.

Time for Meaning brings a bold curriculum to the writing workshop, a curriculum that honors literary thinking and the study of literature. Randy Bomer speaks eloquently and honestly about his own experiences in the classroom: his successive stages of revision, his growth from a good to a better teacher. He encourages inquiry into more reflective practice, inviting you to examine your ways of thinking, your relationship to the "subject of English," your standards for good teaching, your place in the professional community, and most significant, your attitude toward time. Time for Meaning is both thoughtful and practical. It confronts the realities of today's classrooms: overcrowded curriculums, unfriendly colleagues, choppy schedules, and resistant learners. Bomer suggests ways to transform these obstacles into opportunities to rethink the true purpose, meaning, and design of literacy education. He offers guidelines for: helping students choose topics that are important to them- so important that they'll have the energy to work through the writing process prompting initial responses to literature and moving toward polished pieces of writing using writing as a tool for thinking and inquiring-an essential habit of mind for students to develop understanding what makes for poor student research writing and how to improve it planning curriculums that focus on story in fiction and memoir. Since time is so often the crucial issue in teaching, Bomer asks you to examine your attitudes toward time and the way you use it. He writes, "What we do with time is what we do with our lives. When we are 'unable' to spend time on what we most value, it is because we have not found a clarity of purpose. We have lost our maps, lost our rudder, and we drift aimlessly, as if time were not passing, as if this teaching life were not ours to live." Bomer is specific and persuasive without being prescriptive. Time for Meaning is a snapshot of his current thinking, a report on work that has already benefited many teachers. It speaks as powerfully to experienced reading/writing process teachers as it does to newcomers.
