    1. I am a fan of Harvey Daniels' work. With this said, this was my least favorite of his books, and I've read them all! This books is full of great student writing (mostly younger students), and it's full of ideas for engaging students in writingbut the ideas are not new. I've heard them before and seen them before. So, if you've never seen Daniels present and you work with younger students, I highly recommend this book. If you are a teacher who is already familiar with his work, I'd re-read his ot [...]


    2. Just like listening to one of Smokey's workshops! Great ways to have and use written conversations. The ideas all come back to building a deeper understanding of the topic being discussed.


    3. A good book with some great new ideas on how to incorporate writing into the class and promote more student participation.


    4. I read this book in one day. I am so excited to try all of the writing tips they included in this book. I especially like the idea of written small group and large group discussions so everyone is participating. I wished I would've read this book earlier!



    5. This book helped me gather the tools and ideas needed to put written correspondence in place as I've been wanting to do for a long time.


    6. What I loved most about this book is the practical aspect and the takeaways. When I have a professional read, I want to make sure that I can immediately use the strategies and concepts in my space. With this title, I was able to do just that. I am so excited to use dialogue journals and letter to "leverage learning" in the media center. I am always looking for teaching opportunities in the space. Many see us as an area for computers and printing, but I am trying to shift the focus to a learning [...]


    7. For the past year or two, we have been strengthening our collaborative conversations. This book presents ideas on how to have silent conversations through writing. Advantages of this approach include: it is highly motivating, provides more think time and insures that everyone (including shy students) have a voice. Chapter headings include exit slips, dialogue journals, and write arounds. With the use of technology, these written conversations could be extended to blogs, etc. The authors encourag [...]


    8. Oh my goodness, this is a good one! No matter what age or specialty area you teach, Mr. and Mrs. Daniels have suggestions for you. Initially, I thought this would help me with the base school teachers with whom I collaborate, but instead I read about things I am going to try in my own classes. I love the focus on meaningful conversations that get students to think and respond with some depth.This was an excellent, easy-to-read book, and I enjoyed the samples of student work that are included thr [...]


    9. Highly recommended for any teacher across the disciplines. Introduces many great, practical ways to guide students through academic, collaborative discussions across the disciplines. I will certainly be using this as a reference in working with teachers in professional development sessions.



    10. Lots of practical advice and ideas to reenergize "writing to learn" in the classroom. Written conversations can increase participation in discussions and overall learning.
