    "And this is what I love about Gallagher: he practices what he preaches. In Write Like This, he takes the reader by the
    hand and shows how the teaching process occurs in his own classroom, warts and all." - MiddleWeb

    "Specific approaches to teaching effective writing and analytical skills make Write Like This a fine pick for high
    school to college collections alike, packing in plenty of examples for effective writing development." - California
    Bookwatch

    "This book grips you from the beginning to end. It is logical, reasonable and passionate — in other words, it is well
    written. It is the kind of guide to have at hand, to refer to often, and to put into action." - Professionally Speaking

    About the Author
    ----------------

    Kelly, a "baseballoholic" and a self-described expert at negotiating airports, is in his 33rd year of teaching at the
    high school level.

    He currently teaches at Magnolia High School in Anaheim, California.

    He believes that "there is no greater pleasure than teaching someone something." Teaching is "artistic, it matters a
    great deal, and I can never get the job down perfectly."

    Kelly thinks that professional development should treat teachers as such - professionals. "I know in the classroom that
    good things happen when my students have meaningful discussions. I know as a teacher myself that my craft sharpens when
    I am given the opportunity to have meaningful discussions with my peers. And let's have a laugh or two while we are at
    it."

    Writing his six books for Stenhouse was a solitary experience. "Though I have written outlines prior to each of my
    books, I have yet to follow any of them step-by-step. That is why I find writing rewarding - because the act of writing
    itself generates new thinking, and new thinking is always exciting."
