Synopsis

Rain, Steam and Speed Grades 6-12 Building Fluency in Adolescent Writers by Gerald Fleming, Meredith Pike-Baky

In describing their innovative approach, the authors: * Show how to introduce timed writing exercises to build fluency and thinking skills * Provide 150 powerful writing prompts on provocative topics * Offer strategies for enabling students to overcome writing blocks * Include assessment, grading, and motivational guidance The approach has been extensively tested by a master teacher, takes about one hour of instructional time per week, and can be used over an entire school year.
