A Thousand Topics for Composition (Elementary Level) Plus Practical Ideas and Strategies for Teaching. Second Edition.
Evertts, Eldonna L.
Illinois English Bulletin, v68 n1 Fall 1980
This journal issue provides topics and methods that elementary school teachers can use in writing instruction. The first part of the bulletin describes the nature of the composing process, the types of writing that elementary students produce, and an analysis of teaching strategies. These comments speak to the classroom teacher and reflect recent research as well as concerns and insights by respected authorities on composition. Suggestions are given for establishing and encouraging a classroom atmosphere conducive to creating a good writing program. Part two of the bulletin lists more than 1,000 topics for composition that are addressed to the pupil under the following headings: the writer's world (impressions, thoughts, values, etc.), characterization, narration, imaginative writing, play writing, reporting, and miscellaneous. Part three offers the teacher practical suggestions and motivational techniques for bringing composition into the elementary school curriculum. (RL)
