    1 thought on “The Unstoppable Writing Teacher: Real Strategies for the Real Classroom

    1. I picked up this book in August during a summer writing workshop, had to hand it back to the literacy coach, and then borrowed it again this week She doesn t know it s missing There are some helpful tips for all kinds of issues relating to writing workshop, and then there s a lot of rehashing of petty issues that I would claim a good teacher would be able to figure out to lead a better writing workshop for his her students The unstoppable adjective in the title is a bit much.

    2. There are many times where teachers have felt helpless when faced with a new challenge in the classroom and don t know where to start The Unstoppable Writing Teacher is a book set up to conquer those many concerns teachers have as to how to help their students These all familiar concerns consist of I never have enough time , I m not sure how to work with students new to English , and I can t seem to get my students to stay writing unless I m sitting beside them The author, M Colleen Cruz, is ver [...]

    3. I had the privilege to listen to Colleen Cruz in a writing conference in New York last summer and I have since stayed a fan of her work When looking for a book to read to enhance my writing instruction in the classroom, I tend to look for books that will improve my instruction and will keep me entertained The Unstoppable Writing Teacher is that book that helped me gain the confidence that I needed, made my thoughts of being a failure as a writing teacher seem less like a failure and like an obs [...]

    4. A terrific read for all writing teachers The writing style was approachable and made the reading of this professional book a pleasure I loved that the author offered problem solving approaches to so many different scenarios because I think I ve experienced all of them at one time or another The ending was spectacular It praises the hard work that teachers are experiencing in today s climate and inspired me to begin a new school year with excitement.

    5. I borrowed this book from a colleague in hopes of infusing some new powerful strategies into my writing teaching practice The book s organization, short chapters and conversational writing voice made it an easy, accessible read Unfortunately, the book lacked substance and specificity It was heavy on inspirational sound bytes and motivational advice to encourage teachers with Cruz s I ve been there too, approach I m glad I read it and it gave me a few ideas I d recommend this to new teachers who [...]

    6. Not much new here Young teachers may find uses Veterans there is very little fresh ground tilled in this I do agree with Cruz on many points, but one strives for new and fresh approaches that this could not provide me I did not enjoy the book, but give it 2 stars because I do know that it can help others When the chapter titles are longer than the summary I would make for the chapter after reading it entirely it isn t a book to me, but a bloated listicle I know this is overly harsh.

    7. It was both comforting and beneficial to read this book The author validates feeling many teachers of writing have, and she offer practical and doable solutions to get you moving forward in your writing workshop Additional resources are mentioned throughout the book for those wanting to do further investigation.

    8. This book was disappointing I love Colleen s work, so I was excited to read it I loved the structure, and I assumed that it would provide practical tips and strategies than it did For teachers just starting out who need to know they aren t alone in their struggles, this book would likely be beneficial.

    9. I got to meet this author over the Summer at Heinemenn in Portsmouth Great book with strategies teachers can use working with children at all different ages I highly recommend for all my teacher friends.

    10. Straight forward, helpful advice presented in a logical way Especially found the sections on helping strong writers and repetitive writing applicable to my classroom Look forward to implementing some of these ideas in to my writing instruction.

    11. This book is for the teacher it acknowledges the struggles of teaching writing and gives one hope to embrace the struggle and come through with success Specific examples and strategies connect the teacher and the writer so both parties will share the love of writing.

    12. Finally finished Loved Cruz s humor, directness, and honesty Practical answers to common questions with real, usable advice.

    13. I liked the format of this book and how it focused on obstacles writing teachers face Cruz provides great ideas for navigating around them.

    14. Love the real ness of this resource We aren t alone in our struggles Simple strategies to strengthen workshop.

    15. Phenomenal book from a rock star educator and a fellow pessimist I appreciated her candor, honesty, and thoughts on grammar instruction If you are a writing teacher, you should read this book

    16. This book acknowledges that we are not alone It addresses many issues that we could possibly have as writing teachers and writers It gives us strategies on how to help our student.

    17. Good information, just very repetitive It was like having a conversation with someone who keeps making the same point over and over There were many good points made about writing workshop.
