I am going to be teaching 4th grade writing this year for the first time in a very long time. Does anyone have a recommendation for a professional book that would help? TIA

Are you looking for something more philosophy based or lesson based? Do you use the workshop model?
I have read tons of books about teaching writing... If I had to start somewhere, I'd suggest Barry Lane or Ralph Fletcher. If you need help narrowing titles, let me know.

I like the The Literacy Cookbook: A Practical Guide to Effective Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening Instruction by Sarah Tantillo (for grades K-12).

I especially like the Writing section in part three: "Punchy Insights, or How to Avoid Writing Like a Robot."
