Summary: Most young writers are not intimated by personal narrative, fiction, or even poetry, but when they try to put together a "teaching book," report, or persuasive essay, they often feel anxious or frustrated. JoAnn Portalupi and Ralph Fletcher believe that young nonfiction writers supply plenty of passion, keen interest and wonder. Teachers can provide concrete strategies to help students scaffold their ideas as they write in this challenging genre. Nonfiction Craft Lessons will help students breathe voice into lifeless nonfiction writing, make it clearer, more authoritative, and more organized.
