The High School Writing Lab: The Composition Teacher's Survival Kit.
Noting that writing laboratories at the high school level are gaining more attention as high school personnel learn to adapt successful college programs to their own needs, this paper provides information about a laboratory program that was designed to offer tenth through twelfth grade students individualized instruction both to remediate writing deficiencies and to present instruction in sophisticated writing skills. The various sections of the paper offer the following: (1) background information, (2) program objectives, (3) laboratory activities, (4) a description of the physical features of the laboratory (with an accompanying floor plan), (5) a list of procedures for using the laboratory, (6) a discussion of the evaluation procedures used, (7) a copy of a survey form administered to students using the lab, and (8) conclusions from the evaluation. Copies of forms used in the laboratory program are also included in the paper. (MKM)
