Based on Harvey’s bestselling From Striving to Thriving approach, the 27 writing strategies presented in From Striving to Thriving Writers are designed to improve and integrate writing across the curriculum.
With lessons targeting reading, writing, and speaking standards, this innovative writing tool encourages students to practice voluminous writing and build a culture of conversation throughout the writing process, which is especially beneficial for emerging bilingual students.
