"Kopp, a teacher and author of the Learning Through Writing series and books on content-area learning and technology, presents a way for teachers in grades three through five to use writing in daily activities and as a means to learn content areas. She explains how to teach content-area vocabulary, prepare lesson plans that target writing skills, use assessments to direct instruction, and integrate technology into the writing process."

“Kathleen Kopp makes teaching writing fun, and my class always looks forward to the next activity. Her ideas keep even the most reluctant writers engaged. Carefully laid-out lesson plans make implementation a breeze. These are not boring drills. ‘Table Talk’ is definitely one of my favorites. This proved to be an authentic writing assignment following a social studies field trip. It was another way to assess the students’ learning. Writing is learned best through example, and Kathleen’s books give the teacher a model to use for every lesson.”

-Gail Bockiaro, fourth-grade teacher, Forest Ridge Elementary School
