Robert Slavin just published a short review of research on writing instruction that I think teachers might find useful. Check out his post at What Works in Teaching Writing?

Here are some resources I’ve previously shared – please let me know what I’m missing (I’m adding this post to The Best Posts On Writing Instruction):
