"This book would be ideal for the Administrative/Academic coaches who are responsible for staff development in their buildings. I was "wowed" beyond belief! —Leslie Snyder, Middle School Advanced English Teacher, Casa Grande Elementary School District

A book that makes writer's workshop with the common core state standards manageable and doable, is a book that is long overdue. —Ingrid Jones, Ph.D., Professional Learning Specialist, Caroosa County Schools

Too often students' ideas are left out of education. Not so in this book, which gives power to students and help to teachers. Warren Combs' voice engages the reader as he blends a deep understanding of research and practice with state and national trends and standards. The respect shown to teachers and other educators is as appealing as the quotations about writing and life. —Dr. Allen Berger, Childhood & Exceptional Student Education, Armstrong Atlantic State University
