nbsp;This book nbsp;fills the gap for specific learning needs. It is an entire volume devoted to the time-tested, classroom-proven ideas thatreally workwith elementary, middle, and high school studentsincluding ESL and other students who have a limited vocabulary and few literacy skills. Each strategy has been successfully used by master teachers who participate in the San Joaquin Valley Writing Project, and authentic student feedback is included.With written-in adaptability and grade-level indicators so that users can address their own specific goals in the classroom, this book comprehensively covers: teaching vocabulary correctly, collecting words, discovering definitions, working with meanings, expanding writing vocabulary, investigating word origins, and word play.An obviously valuable tool for educators, this book is especially appropriate for new or future teachers, teachers of ESL and continuing education, and other curriculum planners. Can also be used by parents who wish to enhance their childs home study.

nbsp; Gail E. Tompkins nbsp; After teaching writing for more than 30 years at elementary through university levels, Gail E. Tompkins is now a full-time writer. ldquo;Irsquo;ve always liked to write,rdquo; Dr. Tompkins explains. ldquo;My Dad was an Army officer, stationed in post-war Germany when I was four.nbsp; I remember sitting beside my mother at the kitchen table while she wrote weekly letters to my grandparents. I drew pictures and wrote my own notes that she mailed along with her letters. In third grade, I received a journal and filled it with details about the everyday events in my life, like kids do. I did lots of writing in sixth gradendash;more than in high school. I wrote a 126-page tome about anthropology after reading a biography about Margaret Mead. My teacher urged me to improve my spelling and predicted that one day Irsquo;d be a writer. Now I realize that I already was one.rdquo; nbsp; Today Dr. Tompkins divides her time between the east and west coasts.nbsp; She spends much of the year in Fresno, California, but summers on Cape Cod. The photo on this page shows Dr. Tompkins at a beach in Wellfleet.nbsp; Take a clook at the cover of thisnbsp; edition ofTeaching Writing.nbsp;Again it features a pencil; this time the pencilrsquo;s morphed into a submarine thatrsquo;s exploring the Atlantic Ocean off the Cape. nbsp; Dr. Tompkins is ProfessorEmeritaat California State University, Fresno, where she received the prestigious Provostrsquo;s Award for Excellence in Teaching. Previously, she taught at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, where she received the Regentsrsquo; Award for Superior Teaching, and at Miami University in Ohio. Before that, she was an elementary teacher in Northern Virginia for eight years. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; Dr. Tompkins has written numerous articles forLanguage Arts, The Reading Teacher,and other professional journals, and shersquo;s the author of these books, also published by Pearson: bull; Literacy for the 21 st Century: A Balanced Approach,5 th ed. (2010) bull; Literacy in the Early Grades: A Successful Start for PreK-4 Readers and Writers,3 rd ed. (2011) bull; Literacy in the Middle Grades: Teaching Reading and Writing to Fourth Through Eighth Graders, 2 nd ed.
