A Good Fit for All Kids supports teachers in constructing research-based, collaborative approaches to teaching writing, in print and technology-mediated forms, for diverse, inclusive classrooms.


With deep love and high regard for young people and for the educators who work with them, Chandler-Olcott presents a picture of what respectful, inclusive, growth-oriented writing instruction might look like, and ‘what a beautiful job’ teaching could be. I urge all writing project colleagues, and indeed, all writing teachers, to buy this book, to read it in community, and to imagine the possibilities. — Tanya Baker, director, National Programs, National Writing Project

Writing. It scares a lot of students (and their teachers). But it doesn’t have to. Don’t take this the wrong way, but this book makes teaching writing almost seem easy. The advice is practical and grounded in diverse classrooms. It’s accessible and relevant. And it’s actionable. — Douglas Fisher, professor and chair, Department of Educational Leadership, San Diego State University
