Product Description

About the Author

Between her passion for elementary writing instruction and a love of children's literature, Katie Wood Ray found herself asking, "What if children were introduced to key qualities of good writing in the context of illustrations?" This question led to the research behind In Pictures and In Words. The answer was simple yet powerful: "The thinking students do while reading picture books can help them see the connection between what words and illustrations do to make meaning." As an author of bestselling Heinemann books such as Already Ready, Study Driven, About the Authors, and What You Know By Heart and as a member of Heinemann Professional Development Services, Katie has always given teachers resources and PD that transform writing instruction and help children discover a lifelong love of writing. A former Associate Professor at Western Carolina University Katie is now a full time writer and researcher of the teaching of writing. With a particular focus on the study of writing craft, she leads teacher workshops and summer institutes across the nation related to the teaching of writing. Her professional background includes both elementary and middle school teaching experience and two years as a staff developer at The Reading and Writing Project, Teachers College, Columbia University. She was also the coeditor of the journal Primary Voices K-6, a publication of the National Council of Teachers of English. Katie is also the author or coauthor of Spelling in Use: Looking Closely at Spelling in the Whole Language Classrooms (1996, NCTE), Wondrous Words: Writers and Writing in the Elementary Classroom (1999, NCTE), and The Writing Workshop: Working Through the Hard Parts (And Theyre All Hard Parts) (2001, NCTE). A frequent speaker at conferences and summer institutes around the country, Katie also has extensive experience teaching teachers in workshop and demonstration settings. Katie Wood Ray is a Heinemann Professional Development presenter. EC0410

HASH(0xa594d39c) out of 5 stars So Much Words in Pictures Nov. 11 2010
By writerly - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're a primary grade teacher this is a great book to have. Young writers have so much to say but, sometimes they are written in drawings and scribbles. This book will help you appreciate how rich children's illustrations are: with their thoughts, writing processes, language and story telling (if only given the chance). BUY IT, the book is truly worth it!

I also highly recommend About the Authors by Katie Wood Ray.

HASH(0xa59ffe70) out of 5 stars Wonderful Resource! March 26 2012
By Laura Moore - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is filled with wonderful research and ideas for utilizing the complex art of illustration study with students. We often only ask students to make sure "their pictures match their words." In this text, we are able to help student use illustration for making meaning and relaying meaning to their reader. I would totally recommend Katie's book!
