“Concerned about your students' writing skills? Worried about how to prepare them for new performance assessments? In search of ideas for re-conceiving the teaching of writing on your campus? You have come to the right place. Writing Instruction that Works details and analyzes the state of writing in America's schools and offers a vision for how writing could and should be taught. For me, ArthurApplebeeand Judith Langer's book is a call to action. Read it today. Buy a copy for every educator you know.”
Carol Jago, past president, National Council of Teachers of English, associate director, California Reading and Literature Project, UCLA

“In Writing Instruction that Works, Arthur Applebee and Judith Langer do as they have always done: offer us a compelling, coherent, and much-needed vision of what effective middle and high school writing instruction looks like in all content areas, anchoring their insights, recommendations, and claims in their extensive research in the classrooms of real teachers throughout the country. This book serves as a guide for what we must do to teach writing well and how we can do that in our schools, departments, and individual classrooms despite the many challenges we face. It is a book that traces our progress, identifies our problems, reminds us what is possible while revealing the ways we might achieve these ambitious and very important goals. If I had to recommend one book to a teacher, administrator, or professor to read about improving the teaching of writing in all content areas, this would be that book.”
Jim Burke, bestselling author of The English Teacher’s Companion and What’s the Big Idea?
