Summary Note "With 80 percent new material, 'In the middle', third edition brings Nancie Atwell's methods up to date for newcomers and those who have made it their teaching touchstone. Responding to questions and requests from years of professional development workshops, Nancie provides: detailed procedures for organizing and launching a workshop classroom; hundreds of minilessons and reproducibles; hundreds of new pieces of student writing to use as mentor texts; new studies of eight genres; a new look at writing conferences, including red flags to notice and strategies for responding; techniques for conferring with readers; a revamping of her widely adopted literary letters as letter-essays that more than satisfy today's standards for critical reading." - Bookflap.
