PRE-WRITING, THE CONSTRUCTION AND APPLICATION OF MODELS FOR CONCEPT FORMATION IN WRITING.
ROHMAN, D. GORDON; WLECKE, ALBERT O.
"THE BEST YOU CAN WRITE WILL BE THE BEST YOU ARE," WAS THE HYPOTHESIS AND THE CONCLUSION. BASED ON THIS BELIEF, TEACHERS ASSUME A SECOND-PLACE POSITION AND THE GREATEST EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON THE STUDENT AND HIS OWN PERSONAL ENCOUNTER WITH EXPERIENCE AND WITH HIMSELF. THE TEACHER'S PRINCIPAL INTEREST AND RESPONSIBILITY WAS TO ASSIST THE STUDENT IN THIS CRUCIAL, DISCOVERY STAGE OF WRITING. THE OBJECTIVE WAS TO ISOLATE THE STRUCTURING PRINCIPLE OF THIS "PRE-WRITING" ACTIVITY, AND THEN TO DEVISE EXERCISES TO ALLOW STUDENTS TO IMITATE THAT PRINCIPLE IN THEIR OWN WRITING. THIS STUDY DID NOT SEEK TO OFFER A COMPLETE COURSE IN WRITING. THE KIND OF WRITING THAT THE PROJECT STUDENTS PRODUCED FOLLOWED THE DISCOVERY OF FRESH INSIGHT. TEST SCORES SHOWED THAT, ALTHOUGH THERE WAS NO DIRECT TEACHING OF THE WRITING PROCESS FROM PRE-WRITING TO RE-WRITING, THE EXPERIMENTAL HAD ENOUGH TRAINING TO EMERGE AS SUPERIOR IN CONTEST WITH THE "CONTROL" GROUP, WHERE RULES AND TACTICS PROVIDED THE BASIS FOR ALL TEACHING.
