Accurate, but....

Posted By: Michael Pressley on January 29, 2004
The NWP book fails as Cheeseman relates, with his appraisal generally accurate. I was more than a little taken back by its tone. In general, my response to a book that says little is to write little about it, and hence, this remark will be brief: There has been a great deal of excellent research on promoting writing achievement in students. Sadly, little of it was even an allusion in this volume, with this particularly tragic at a time when writing has ceded much of its presence in the early school years given the reading skills pressure in NCLB. The country needs an excellent book summarizing evidence-based writing instruction.
