Composition for Personal Growth: Values Clarification through Writing.
Simon, Sidney B.; And Others
A program designed for teaching composition to students in grades seven through twelve is presented in this book. The approach advocated attempts to promote the student's awareness of self, his ability to relate positively to others, and his ability to translate his values into meaningful actions through guided activities of reading and writing. Chapters address themselves to such issues as composition, identity, interpersonal relations, values into action, personal growth, implementing the "composition for personal growth" approach, general techniques and activities, ongoing activities, and personal-growth activities for teachers. Also included is a list of suggested readings for the teacher. Although the book was originally intended for use in English classes, the program has been used effectively by teachers in drug education programs, group counselors, social studies teachers, religious educators, foreign language teachers, and leaders in youth programs.
