Annotation: This DVD enables us to see Aimee Buckner in action as she engages her fourth graders in a variety of learning contexts using writers’ notebooks to “collect ideas from their lives.” Her “behind the scenes” commentary presents ideas about why and how to infuse writers’ notebooks into students’ learning lives. Aimee demonstrates how to use writer’s notebooks through her minilessons and genre studies. As they become more confident writers, they gain voice in their writing. Writer’s notebooks help students generate topics, analyze different points of view, and reflect on their own learning. On the DVD, she explains that a writer’s notebook helps students pay attention to the world and ask questions, just like published authors. Classroom teachers and coaches will find this DVD to be an excellent complement to studies of writers’ notebooks, persuasive writing, and writing in the content areas.
