by Shannon Anderson
This book has been developed upon request after presenting the contained information at teachers’ conferences for many years. It is a gold mine of practical strategies for planning and implementing writing instruction in the classroom. The lessons have been generated over time through Shannon’s 24 years of experience as a classroom teacher, adjunct professor, and writing coach. She also provides professional development workshops for elementary schools and teaches various writing camps and workshops for kids.
Be an Amazing Writing Teacher will provide a spark and a renewed confidence for teachers as they learn to creatively develop lessons when they teach writing. Teachers will come away with many ideas and a framework for planning writing for their whole school year.

“There is no one who promotes, models, and instills a passion for reading and writing more than Shannon Anderson. Her enthusiasm is natural and she understands best practices. On an annual basis, we have parents who want the ‘Mrs. Anderson Experience’ she delivers for her students and our school.” ~Principal Chad Wynn – Van Elementary School
