Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Nonfiction writing is important in a student's school life and it is important a skill that they will use throughout their lives. The majority of our daily reading and writing experience is made up of nonfiction, and students are writing non fiction long before they are taught how to do it in the classroom. They need to recognize that writing nonfiction is far more than the traditional descriptive reports about animals. The principles of nonfiction writing apply to all student writing, even the tweets, texts, and blogs they compose.

The writer's intent is the underlying foundation of Nonfiction Writing Power. Building on Adrienne Gear's Reading Power books, this valuable addition to her highly successful books addresses the close link between reader and writer. This remarkable book shows teachers how to help students recognize that they write because they have something to say. It argues that writing nonfiction well means considering the writer's intent and purpose, and choosing the most appropriate form among the various nonfiction genres.

Nonfiction Writing Power is designed to help teachers develop a writing program that focuses on the different forms of nonfiction. This practical book helps teachers work with students to explore

  • the Power to Describe
  • the Power to Instruct
  • the Power to Compare
  • the Power to Persuade
  • the Power to Explain
  • the Power to Report

Ideal support for teaching writing in the content areas, the book includes ways that a particular form can link to science, social studies, and other subject areas.
