Teaching Writing as a Learning Process: Assignments and Evaluation Strategies.
Thomas, Linda J.
Three workshops conducted by consultants will help faculty members at Midway College in Lexington, Kentucky, incorporate effective writing instruction in the content areas. The first workshop will stress the importance of reading and writing to the learning process and provide concrete exercises that demonstrate how writing can be used to generate ideas and to find organizing principles for the practice and improvement of writing. The second will stress the modes of discourse and the importance both of understanding aims and audiences and of using the feedback generated by peer review. It also will provide useful assignments the faculty can use in their classes. The third workshop will deal with evaluation, particularly multiple drafting and peer review. (Appendixes describe the topics and strategies for the three workshops.) (JL)
