Marc's book Putting Everyday Life on the Page was published by Corwin Press.
Tom Armstrong, a colleague of Howard Gardner has called it, “A refreshing break from the rule –obsessed manuals… What better way to teach students to write than through their own experiences, their own senses, their own feelings of mystery, wonder and excitement.”
This engaging book offers a wealth of easily implemented ideas and activities to encourage a culture of writing in your classroom and teach writing by acknowledging and utilizing what your students already know. Illustrating how teachers can use a multisensory approach and exercise students' observational intelligence, the author emphasizes specific facets of the writer's craft:
* Beginnings
* Sequential thinking
* Observation and description
* Characters
* Settings and endings
