The eight articles in the first section of this publication on the teaching of writing in British schools concentrate on classroom practices--ways of motivating student creative writing, the encouragement of group expository writing, and criteria to be considered when marking student writing. In the second section, five articles critically analyze the principles behind current classroom practices. Topics covered are the need for reevaluations of the teaching of both expository and creative writing, the influence of creative writing on expository composition, writing as a reflection of a child's development, the effect of writing for an unfamiliar audience of peers, and the findings of a research study on the written language of 11- to 18-year-olds. Also included is a review of a 1967 American study of English teaching in the United Kingdom. (JM)
