A Method for Teaching Writing.
Elbow, Peter
College English, v30 n2 p115-125 Nov 1968
This article proposes to teach writing from the hypothesis that true writing and good prose are only end products rather than the primary objectives. The author suggests that producing an effect in a reader and revealing the self in words are prior achievements in the process of learning to write well. Criteria for judging writing are based largely on an attempt to achieve empirical class judgment. The method is intended principally for college freshmen. (Author/RL)
