Modeling Effective Writing Strategies for Preservice and Inservice Content Area Teachers.
Morton, Johnnye L.
A study examined whether modeling desired teaching strategies would produce future teachers who could confidently go into a new classroom and set up a writing program. Four weeks of class time in a teacher education class at Northeastern University in Oklahoma were used to teach the writing process through the use of a writer's workshop. Results indicated that students learned not only how to select topics, draft, struggle with revisions, edit and experience the joy of having a finished book, but also how to work with peers and use conferencing techniques. In addition, these students feel comfortable with authentic writing, and are able to use these techniques in their own classrooms. (PRA)
