Writing Workshop

I have recently finished reading "In the Middle" by Nancie Atwell and was wondering if anyone has used "Lessons That Change Writers," and your feelings towards it? Would it be suitable for 7th and 8th grade?

The next book on my list is "The Art of Teaching Writing" by Lucy Calkins. I know that she is a big part of The Writing and Reading Projects, and was wondering if Nancie Atwell and Lucy Calkins practices jive or are contrary?

Any info on any of this would be helpful.

Our district has approved "Lessons that Change Writers" as a supplement. I have pulled lessons from her book on collecting ideas for writer's workshop. I even introduced poetry using her ideas. In fact, one of my kids who didn't like to write previously was inspired and started writing every day on his own. You would have to check it out. I have not pulled a whole lot out of it only because we have a main curriculum to follow.

As for comparing the two ladies, it's been so long since I read Lucy Calkins, I can't remember. I think they were along the same lines, but again, it has been a long while.
