From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Reviving Ophelia, Another Country, and The Shelter of Each Other comes an inspirational book that shows how words can change the world.

Writers can change the way we think and transform our definitions of right and wrong. Writing to Change the World is a beautiful paean to the transformative power of words. Encapsulating Mary Pipher's years as a writer and therapist, it features rousing commentary, personal anecdotes, memorable quotations, and stories of writers who have helped reshape society. It is a book that will shake up readers' beliefs, expand their minds, and possibly even inspire them to make their own mark on the world.

I recommend this book to all teachers who teach writing . . . the way you teach writing will change forever. - Brian Cambourne, Wollongong University If a school reflects the beliefs of its community, then its curriculum mirrors how children are valued and what kinds of learning matter most. In some schools well-intentioned writing curriculum disengages students from their world by artificially limiting their natural zest for self-expression. That's why, argues Lorraine Wilson, it's crucial that writing be structured to open students' eyes and excite them with the many possibilities that literate behaviors offer. Writing to Live specifically addresses ways to make writing curriculum relevant to students' lives while helping them develop the skills to become active, critically aware citizens. Wilson introduces a variety of contemporary, research-based strategies that bring writing instruction into the moment and engage students-strategies such as: welcoming children to think and write about "hot topics" of their choice encouraging them to bring their out-of-school literacies into the classroom inviting them to explore a broad range of genres asking students to write with purpose and answer challenging questions promoting critical literacy techniques such as considering author purpose and values, identifying stereotypes, and responding to and rewriting texts. Wilson's strategies develop children's self-confidence as writers and readers while giving them an opportunity to voice concerns, express opinions, and seek answers to questions of social justice. And to help you understand how her ideas work in practice, she provides a detailed account of two upper-elementary classrooms where the curriculum is relevant to students' lives, and activities such as writing, reading, role playing, and drawing cultivate active, critically aware citizens. Every community loves its children, but in some places, the writing curriculum doesn't nurture students in ways that help them develop into responsible decision makers. Let Writing to Live be your guide, and make a change for the better.

From a master teacher, a results-oriented approach to powerful legal writing that communicates, that persuades--and that wins. Of all the professions, the law has the most deserved reputation for opaque, jargon-clogged writing. Legal education, which focuses on judicial opinions, not instruments of persuasion, is partly to blame. Yet forceful writing is one of the most potent weapons of legal advocacy. In Writing to Win, Steve Stark, a former teacher of writing at Harvard Law, who has taught thousands of aspiring and practicing lawyers, has written the only book on the market that applies the universal principles of vigorous prose to the job of making a case--and winning it. Writing to Win focuses on the writing of lawyers, not judges, and includes dozens of examples of effective (and ineffective) real-life writing--as well as models drawn from advertising, journalism, and fiction. It deals with the problems lawyers face in writing, from organization to strengthening and editing prose; teaches ways of improving arguments; addresses litigation and technical writing in all its forms; and covers the writing attorneys must perform in their practice, from memos and letters to briefs and contracts. Each chapter opens with a succinct set of rules for easy reference. No other legal writing book on the market is as practical, as focused on results, as well written as Writing to Win.
