Teaching Composition: Guidelines for Teachers of the Required Composition Course in Idaho High Schools.
Healy, Michael P.; And Others
This guide is intended for use by Idaho educators in implementing courses to meet that state's new composition requirements for high school students. Following a brief overview of the new requirements, the major section of the guide presents information about class size, teacher qualifications, and materials needed for the courses. The role of spelling and grammar and the amount of required writing are also discussed. The third section offers suggestions for course content, including types of both practical and academic writing, while the fourth deals with teaching the writing process, including the prewriting, writing, and postwriting stages, and evaluation. A final section presents lists of resources for the teaching of writing. (FL)
