50 Ways to Teach Them Writing

A quick shout-out to my friend and colleague, Maggie Sokolik, for her book Fifty Ways to Teach Them Writing: Tips for ESL/EFL Teachers. The Kindle edition is available for download from Amazon for $.99. Yes, that's right, 99 cents! You can also purchase an online format here

The book recommends a recursive, process approach to writing and includes tips for three categories: pre-writing and planning, writing topics and strategies, and editing and revising. The tips are easily adaptable for any classroom context, and I am happy to see a few listed that I use already - e.g., Reverse Outlining, Listen to Your Writing - and plenty more that I'd like to use in the future - e.g., Write a Proper Email, Writing Thesis Statements. Also included is a link to additional material (worksheets) for classroom use.
