Regular Writing Practice--Strategies for Implementation and Evaluation.
Rucker, Gary H.
Intended for teachers of elementary and secondary school writing, this paper describes the Regular Writing Practice (RWP) program, which combines the philosophical and pedagogical bases of Lyman Hunt's Uninterrupted Sustained Silent Reading program with the instructional methodology of creative writing and composition. The first portion of the paper defines RWP as a supplement to language arts programs, presents procedures for organizing an RWP program, and outlines behavioral objectives for a four-week RWP unit. The middle portion then presents a daily syllabus for the four weeks, and a list of writing activities designed for regular writing practice. The final portion of the paper presents methods for formal and informal evaluation of student writing, and RWP samples evaluated using word/T-unit counts. (HTH)
