Recently I mentioned that Mary Jo Fresch (and I, honorarily) had an article accepted by The California Reader, which drew from the book we did together for Scholastic, 7 KEYS TO RESEARCH FOR WRITING SUCCESS. We are particularly pleased to see this new attention brought to the ideas in our book. I think it’s one of the best projects I’ve been involved in because it provides so much help for classroom teachers showing students how to approach writing and greatly improve their results.
I’m happy to say the article is out now in Volume 53, Number 3, Fall 2020, pp 26-30. The title is “Three Steps to Researching: Modeling the Works of Authors.”
Yesterday our editor notified us and said, “We have been receiving rave reviews about your article. I hope you are happy with the end result.” She also invited us to consider future articles, and we will. We even have a potential subject in mind inspired by our book coming out this fall with NCTE titled EMPOWERING STUDENTS’ KNOWLEDGE OF VOCABULARY: LEARNING HOW LANGUAGE WORKS.
Hey, Mary Jo, maybe on the next one I can be more than just a pretty face. (:>
