This practical, thoughtful resource uses the Reading Power thinking strategies to show young writers how to engage their readers' thinking through their writing. Writing Power will guide teachers through a series of lessons focusing on each of the strategies: connect, question, visualize, infer, and transform. A wide range of effective writing techniques are outlined and reinforced throughout the book, with suggested "anchor books" for each lesson. The fundamentals of the writing process and the "6 Traits" are integrated into this unique examination of how developing an awareness of the readers' thinking can influence and affect a student's ability to write.
