A Guide to Journal Writing.
Christensen, Linda, Ed.; And Others
Noting that the writer's journal is both a memory bank for observations and a nonthreatening means of exploring language, this guide offers individual classroom strategies for making the journal a valuable writing instruction tool. Following an introduction, the guide is divided into sections as follows: (1) philosophy of journals in the classroom; (2) the value of journals for writers; (3) some questions teachers ask about using journals; (4) journal writing activities for the elementary, junior high, and high school levels; and (5) fictional and nonfictional journal writers for use as models at the elementary and secondary levels. The guide concludes with a bibliography. (HTH)
