Part writer's notebook and part sourcebook, My Quick Writes includes more than sixty of Donald Graves' favorite and most effective prompts for practicing and reflecting on your own writing processes. Graves and Penny Kittle walk you through how to do Quick Writes and the role they play in their own writing and teaching. Then they offer you ample personal space for doing them yourself. You'll try out new ideas, techniques, and genres, such as:

  • thinking and writing from different points of view
  • writing poems
  • putting together personal narratives
  • turning favorite or poignant letters into essays
  • creating fiction.
  • In addition, Graves and Kittle present seventeen prompts to try with your students. With these prompts, you'll connect the experience of doing Quick Writes on your own to your students' experiences with them, while at the same time helping children prepare for timed writing tests without giving over your writing workshop to test prep.

    My Quick Writes is the hands-on way to practice and reflect on your writing process as you implement the apprenticeship model for teaching writing described in Inside Writing. Even if you don't consider yourself a writer, join Donald Graves and Penny Kittle and learn more about your writing and that of your students with My Quick Writes.
