Three B's and a C: Building Blocks for Better Composition.
Fitzhugh, William P.
Often students have the option to choose topics to write about during creative writing sessions. Increasingly, however, state mandated tests do not give students options of writing topics. The state mandated test specifies the topic. "Three B's and a C" is an integrated creative writing/social studies program that teaches students strategies for effective writing while at the same time reinforcing social studies concepts and vocabulary. The writing program has 15 generic activities that can be used during any social studies unit. When students have learned the process involved in each activity, they begin to become independent writers. The strategies are implemented easily in the regular classroom. The students enjoy using the strategies. (Ten figures are included.) (Author/RS)
