Writing begins before students even pick up a pencil, but
there are many reasons to stop and rejoice between the idea and the
finished project. By helping students celebrate each stage of the
writing process and applauding success, we help our students persevere
through what can be an extended and challenging process.

In their innovative new book, Celebrating Writers, Ruth
Ayres and Christi Overman discuss dozens of ways to respond, reflect,
and rejoice along the journey to a finished project. This type of
celebration nurtures students, makes them better writers, and helps them
recognize that writing is a process filled with notable moments, not
simply a result where publication is the only marker of success. From
traveling notebooks to lunch-table writing, from author interviews with a
writing partner to silent reflection, from swapping stories around a
"campfire" to tweeting favorite lines, Ruth and Christi share dozens of
fun and effective ways for you and your students to commemorate their
progress as writers. As the authors write, "It's time to expand the idea
of celebration to include the process of writers and the products they
create. Let's build an approach that weaves celebration into the heart
of all writers. Be ready to learn to refuel the writers in your
classroom, even on the tough days."
