Focusing on the different forms of nonfiction, this remarkable book shows teachers how to help students recognize that they write because they have something to say; that to write well means considering intent and purpose, and choosing the most appropriate form of expression. Practical and comprehensive, this fourth book in Adrienne Gear's "Powers" series will help teachers work with students to explore their Nonfiction Writing Powers: to Describe, to Instruct, to Compare, to Persuade, to Explain, and to Report. Ideal support for teaching writing in the content areas, the book includes methods for linking to Science, Social Studies, and more.
