A Guide to Tailoring Writing Assignments for the Mainstreamed Student.
Diamond, Irene M., Ed.; And Others
This booklet offers teachers of mainstreamed educationally disadvantaged and learning disabled students some practical strategies for tailoring general writing assignments to meet individual needs. The concept of mainstreaming is discussed in part one, and general strategies for composition teachers are listed in part two. Part three describes 13 specific writing assignments that feature extensive prewriting activities for the elementary/middle grades, ordered from easy to difficult, and a nine-week expository writing course for high school students. The last section suggests using writing to improve students' coping skills and presents three case studies to support that use. (AEA)
