In this third group of thirteen authors in Series III, we learn from a diverse set of writers with varied backgrounds, education and stories to share. And, in addition to reviewing the steps of the writing process, the course outlines seven techniques for effective writing. This professional development series is a master-teacher series where educators can learn first-hand about writing from some of the best writers and then share this information with students. (Recommended for teachers of all grade levels)
