Reading and Writing: Partners in Freshman Composition R3SW (Read, Search, Select, Study, and Write).
Sieben, J. Kenneth
This paper (1) discusses the SQ3R formula for reading: survey, question, read, recite, and review; and (2) proposes a similar formula for remedial composition; R3SW, which means, read, search, select, study, and write. An example of this formula is given, using imperative sentences as the understood subject. In using the composition formula during a class, the teacher demonstrates on the chalkboard a number of examples of imperatively sentences which the students read and analyze. As part of the homework assignment, the students are instructed to search for imperative sentences and select five of them to bring to class. The idea of this exercise is to get the students to discover examples of imperative sentences from sources outside the classroom so they can relate them to nonacademic life. Finally, the students study the features of the imperative sentence, and then write their own. (TS)
