An 18-week course of study whose objective is to enable middle school students to become capable, functional writers is discussed in this monograph. The first section is a treatment of course objectives and overall design, containing semester, course, and instructional unit outlines. The second section of the monograph discusses instructional procedures, offering a method of introduction and orientation on the first day, the specifics of unit one of the course, and a teacher's guide to unit three to serve as an example of how to teach the 15 units of study. Appendixes contain sample worksheets and student activities, a script for a slide tape presentation during the introductory lesson, an informal inventory of functional writing skills, a student survey form, and additional materials helpful for unit presentations.
