This cumulative writing program for grades 7-12 of the Arlington County Public Schools presents a basic philosophy of composition which assumes that the process of writing consists of "probing deeply into a subject, ordering thought, and placing those thoughts on paper in such a way as to assure meaning." Following the discussions of the three areas of the program (creative writing, exposition, and literary analysis), grade-level sections present brief representative exercises with objectives, stimuli, and discussions. Background articles, from the Yale Conference on the Teaching of English, on thinking and writing are appended. (LH)
