Writing Boxes: The Reading/Writing Connection in Libraries
by Lisa Von Drasek
Writing Boxes: The Reading/Writing Connection in Libraries is a guidebook and source of programming inspiration for all librarians working with early to young adult readers. Librarians will find thematic, easy to implement, hour-long writing workshops that require only paper, markers, and excited young writers. Writing Boxes further explores the essential connection between reading and writing by pairing each workshop with mentor texts to model writing, providing librarians with exemplary books to spark writing responses across genres, formats, and curricula. This monograph has been peer reviewed.
