Better Teaching--Better Writing, ESEA IV-C, Interim Report.
The Better Teaching--Better Writing program, as implemented in the School District of Webster Groves (MO), has four objectives: (1) by the completion of a 1979 Summer Writing Institute, the 19 participants would demonstrate increased knowledge about the literature and research in the teaching of writing, about teaching of writing approaches, and about the evaluation of writing; (2) throughout 1979-80, 128 junior high/middle school English teachers in the participating districts would attend at least ten hours each of in-service training on the writing process; (3) the 911 students enrolled in the trained teachers' courses would demonstrate increased writing skills; and to reinforce the first two objectives, (4) teachers of the three summer institutes would pool and disseminate their collective knowledge and expertise. All the objectives were achieved. (BW)
