Your students may be surprised to learn that even the most talented professional authors cannot write a publishable work from start to finish in one sitting. Writing is a process. A great deal of work is involved in producing a finished piece of writing. However, this work can be fun. The activity sheets in this book are geared toward nonfiction writing. Your students will enjoy learning and practicing the steps in the writing process while working through the activities. The first half of the book teaches (or reviews) the steps in the writing process. The activity sheets in the second half of the book guide students through the writing process as they work on an original nonfiction writing assignment.
