Aimee Buckner has been in education for more than twenty years. She thrives on the idea that teaching is about helping students develop intellectually, physically, and emotionally. The writer's notebook helps her carve out a place in the curriculum to allow students to truly be themselves and find their own voice. Aimee continues to consult internationally. Aimee is a contributor to Choice Literacy and is the author of two other books with Stenhouse Publishers: Notebook Know-How: Strategies for the Writer's Notebook and Notebook Connections: Strategies for the Reader's Notebook.
"As I read each chapter, I felt as if I was sitting in Ms.
Buckner's classroom, watching a great teacher in action. I could
sense her enthusiasm as her students asked questions, fidgeted as
she explained a concept, became engaged in the writing process, and
developed a desire to become better writers. Nonfiction
Notebooks is a book that can be put to use immediately, as I
did. It includes ideas that can be used alongside today's lesson or
saved in your mental file cabinet." - MiddleWeb
