The Second Edition is Here!

I'm excited to announce that Teaching the Story: Fiction Writing in Grades 4-8 is now at the printers. You can order this expanded version from Maupin House at 10% off the cover price of $23.95 until mid-October. Not only will you find more ideas on how to teach short fiction to 4th & 5th graders, but there are almost 20 new technology mini-lessons that infuse technology into the writing process maximizing differentiation in your classroom. You and your students will enjoy learning how wikis, podcasts, and virtual worlds can help them jazz up their writing and create more well-written and original fiction. Steve Johnson, a technology facilitator in North Carolina who I met at NCCAT, did a great job writing the technology mini-lessons. I can't wait for all of you to see what a fine addition these tech lessons are to the book.

Let me know when you get your copy!

YAYAYAY!! This is exciting! I'm still using the first edition. But the second one is calling my name, too!

I hope to be able to get it soon. Until then, I'll just drool... :)

I told a public teacher friend about your book yesterday. I'm taking my copy to church next Sunday so she can see it. She was really excited about the content as I was explaining it to her.

I hope she then shares it with HER teacher buddies! :) NC would greatly benefit from this fab book!
