A Survey of Three Oregon Writing Projects.
OSSC Bulletin, v25 n7 Mar 1982
Three writing projects in the state of Oregon, each of which uses a different approach to the teaching of writing, are described in this report. The first section of the report deals with the Coos County ESD Composition Improvement Project, which focuses on writing as a three-step process involving prewriting, writing, and postwriting. The section provides a brief history of the Project, discusses the development of its skill development kits and details its achievements. The second section concerns the Valley Educational Consortium Writing Project, which concentrates on a goal-based instructional management system that stresses basic writing conventions and modes of discourse. Following a brief history of the Project, the section discusses the instructional materials it has developed, reviews its assessment procedures, and presents its achievements. The final section of the report covers the Oregon Writing Project, which concentrates on staff development. The section discusses the Project's history, philosophy and structure, teaching strategies, influence in Oregon schools, and achievements. (FL)
