Editing invitations

Anderson, Jeff
Editing invitations takes you into Jeff Anderson's sixth-grade classroom as Jeff demonstrates how he naturally links grammar instruction to writer's craft through his 'Invitations to Notice'. The invitations are a warm-up activity used at the beginning of writer's workshops to help students learn to play close attention to mechanics, style and craft. They can be used as an alternative to daily oral language for those teachers who are looking for stronger connections between writer's craft and grammar instruction. These quick exercises include whole-group examination of a sentence as a mentor text, focused practice and discussion, all in just a few minutes. About the author: Jeff Anderson has taught at large, urban Title I schools in Houston, Austin, and San Antonio for the past twenty years. He recently left the classroom to write and consult with schools and school districts on a full-time basis. Jeff's areas of specialty are writing; using mentor texts to teach writing, grammar, editing, and revising; and integrating reading and writing. "I love the ability to spark curiosity and creativity and to support students in finding their voices. That's pure joy."
