Interdisciplinary Writing: A Guide to Writing across the Curriculum.
Diamond, Irene M., Ed.; And Others
This guide provides a rationale and suggests activities for teachers in all subject matter areas to use in helping their students to write. Some of the activities described are interdisciplinary in nature and lend themselves to team teaching arrangements; other activities are suggested that support the integration of writing into given content areas but do not necessarily depend upon the cooperation across secondary departments. Writing activities for middle, junior high, and high school are suggested in the areas of the humanities, mathematics, science, driver education, health, home economics, industrial arts, music, physical education, and visual arts. Expository writing across the curriculum, the importance of prewriting, and interdisciplinary communication are also discussed for the upper grades. Elementary school writing activities are suggested for language arts, social sciences, science, mathematics, and special holidays. (AEA)
