"Prompted to Write" offers help for teachers who are preparing their students for "high stakes" writing tests. This book features fifteen in-depth and reproducible lesson units to help students develop proficiency in crafting essays in all subjects, building their vocabulary and reading comprehension skills, and assessing the quality of their written work. The lessons cover a variety of essay genres and are useful in preparing students for state-mandated writing tests, school entrance and exit exams, and the SAT. Each lesson includes guided pre-writing and planning activities and concludes with a timed writing task (complete with a revision/edition checklist) and a customized scoring guide. Student writing samples are provided along with extensive instructional and assessment guidance.

Rain, Steam and Speed by Meredith Pike-Baky Rain, Steam and Speed, Paperback (November 2004)

Many books consider the technical skills of writing, but few address issues of fluency - how to help students write with ease on a variety of topics. Even when students understand drafting and revision, they often stall when confronted with a writing task, feeling they lack ideas or language, or have nothing to say.
