dc.description.abstract Current research demonstrates the success of teaching the process of writing instead of emphasizing the product of writing. Process writing allows students to make mistakes, learn to recognize their mistakes, and use various resources in their environment to help them correct their mistakes. Teachers focus on the content of their students' writing rather than the mechanics of writing knowing that attention to the craft of writing will produce better writers. I support the importance of process writing and explain how quality children's literature can be used to help children develop writing skills as they are immersed in process writing. I illustrate the importance of using quality children's literature as a model for children to follow and with which the children can experiment using various new writing techniques.
