Evaluating Writing Strands Sep 29, 2008
This is a very good book to have to answer questions about how to grade/correct your childs work. She gives great pointers on just how to encourage your child to "love" writing. If your using Writing Strands you need this book!
Not needed... Oct 20, 2007
I purchased this along with the Writing Strands workbook. While we love the Writing Strands curriculum, I was unhappy with this guide. It is mostly filled with make-believe conversations between the author and students. Not exactly helpful. Do check out the Writing Strands, though. Our 3rd grader who didn't like to write really enjoys it!
