In freewriting, we write continuously: we begin with a prompt and keep our pen or pencil moving throughout the entire duration. We do not stop to question or censor ourselves; we do not concern ourselves with spelling, punctuation, capitalization, or grammar; we do not allow critical thoughts. This practical book shows teachers how to use freewriting to help kids write well and more, regardless of grade level, subject, or time of day or year. It is a simple process to implement, and yet makes a significant difference in teacher attitudes, student confidence, and, ultimately, student writing abilities.
