Présentation de l'éditeur

It’s been said that mediocre writers borrow, but great writers steal. Writing thieves read widely, dive deeply into texts, and steal bits and pieces from great texts as models for their own writing. Ruth Culham admits to being a writing thief—and she wants you and your students to become writing thieves, too!
Students learn more about reading and writing when we use mentor texts to explore how writing works. Within this book, you’ll discover more than 90 excellent mentor texts along with straightforward activities that can help you teach the traits of writing across the informational, narrative, and argument modes. Ruth presents exceptional examples of children’s literature and everyday texts, organized around the key qualities of the writing traits, that can give your students clear, enjoyable examples of good writing—which they can then pinch and pilfer as models for their own writing.
Chapters also include brief essays from favorite writing thieves—Lester Laminack, David L. Harrison, Lisa Yee, Nicola Davies, Ralph Fletcher, Toni Buzzeo, and Lola Schaefer—detailing the reading that has influenced their own writing.
Ruth’s warm, easygoing style and friendly tone make this a book you’ll turn to again and again as you guide your students to reach their full potential as deep, thoughtful readers and great writers. There’s a writing thief in each of us when we learn how to read with a writer’s eye!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "How are you doing that?" 29 avril 2014
Par Debra Stewart - Publié sur
This is a question I would like to ask Ruth Culham. How are you continually knocking
excellent books out for the educational community? This is another book that needs
to be on every writer's bookshelf. Written like you are sitting in a coffee shop with
Ruth herself and discussing those probing thoughts about writing and being a writer.
Ruth has taken the time to "rethink the teaching of writing" and included practical thoughts
on how to change your own writing along with letting students become writers.
Thank you for this "how to" book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I love this book! 18 mai 2014
Par Sharon O'Connor - Publié sur
I was so excited when I read that Ruth Culham had a new book coming out. After devouring it, all I can say is Wow! I'm inspired all over again; I CAN teach my kids to write. I've always loved her writing style: friendly, non-threatening, and reinforcing that a lot of the things I'm doing anyway have been spot-on. Thank you, Ruth!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Information for Building a Firm Foundation for Your Students 2 août 2014
Par Yvonne C - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Rating this book for what it IS, not for what I WANT IT TO BE, it easily earns five stars from me for information, thoroughness, practicality, usability, clarity, and references.

Although written for elementary grades (I teach English language arts to grades 6-11), I purchased it anyway after reading the reviews and found it to be quite informative. I, as expected, was able to glean some useful information from it.

NOTE: Be aware that it doesn't actually CONTAIN the mentor writings; it refers the reader to the book/Web site that does contain the model for writing.

Pages 40-43 list the key qualities and their components of each writing trait. Excellent for preparing a sound assessment rubric!

For those who teach elementary grades, this book is an absolute winner, a definite must have. By following the guidelines in it, your students will have a solid foundation in all genres of writing -- and for those who teach writing to the upper grades, your school will love you for it.

Oh, yes, and it's also Common Core friendly.

Par Mary Sue Denninghoff - Publié sur
Ruth Culham knows how to make good writers. By breaking down the mysteries of great writing and using actual texts, it gives students the tools they need to recognize and recreate excellent writing. Well-written and inspirational, this book is a great supplement to a writing curriculum.

Par Linda Brock - Publié sur
From its artistic cover to Ruth's "Final Thoughts" on the last page, The Writing Thief will inspire you to reclaim the soul of your writing instruction. Ruth answers the call of the CCSS to make writing more relevant and rigorous by teaching students about writing that exists in the real world. She advises teachers to "stop doing dumb things," addressing "zombie practices" such as the five-paragraph essay or teaching skills in isolation. As a bonus, it's fun to read! Because of Ruth's warm narrative style, I felt like I was reading a beach read rather than preparing for a new school year.
