“With all the knowledge Kathy Tuchman Glass has about the genre of argumentation, [this book] is a great tool to have at your side when it comes time to teach your argument unit.”

“Kathy Tuchman Glass’s new book is a must-read for teachers, literacy coaches, and curriculum designers who want to instill the love of writing in their students and, at the same time, increase their students’ levels of proficiency as writers. Glass has written a solid, step-by-step approach to designing or revamping writing units. As a literacy consultant, I appreciate Glass’s emphasis on backward design and the use of standards in creating writing units. In addition, students and teachers will enjoy her wealth of 21st century ideas and resources for using technology in the writing process in their classrooms. This book should be on every school’s reading list for in-house professional development!”
