The power of peer models is undeniable. When students see others taking risks in their writing — persevering, problem-solving, and succeding — they become empowered. The student samples in this book are paired with writing lessons that are "doable" for students: they highlight skills, strategies, craft moves, and traits within the reach of their intended audience. As teachers and students study the examples, they will think, “I can do that!” Additionally, samples that reflect the most common errors or trouble spots are included, enabling teachers to explicitly teach to these points.
