Designed primarily for the use of language arts teachers in the secondary schools, this inservice resource booklet provides a consistent emphasis on developing and strengthening skills in functional and creative writing. Following an introduction, the booklet presents a brief guide for the inservice leader, and a self-corrective test for teachers on the components of writing and instruction. The major portion of the booklet is divided into two parts. The first part introduces functional writing and includes sentence and paragraph building, essay tests, and the research paper. The second part introduces creative writing and includes the short story, the novel and drama, biography, and poetry. Each of the components presented in these two sections contains a discussion of its objective, the instructional concept, and suggested application with learners. A section of general review notes contains appropriate responses to the pretest found at the beginning of the booklet. The booklet concludes with appendixes on poetry, a bibliography, and a glossary.
