Please join us in congratulating Penny Kittle for her 2009 NCTE Britton Award for Write Beside Them! This book is about teaching writing and the gritty particulars of teaching adolescents. But it is also the planning, the thinking, the writing, the journey: all I've been putting into my teaching for the last two decades.

This is a book of vision and hope and joy, but it is also a book of genre units and minilessons and actual conferences with students. -Penny KittleWhat makes the single biggest difference to student writers? When the invisible machinery of your writing processes is made visible to them. Write Beside Them shows you how to do it. It's the comprehensive book and DVD that English/language arts teachers need to ensure that teens improve their writing.

In addition, Write Beside Them provides a study guide, reproducibles, writing samples from Penny and her
