Designed for use in grades K-12, this teacher's resource manual advocates the use of a language-experience approach and diagnostic-prescriptive techniques derived from modern linguistic theory for the promotion of students' facility in written composition. The program utilizes an individualized approach and relates writing instruction to speaking, listening, and reading activities, as well as to the students' ideas and feelings. The first section includes a rationale, an overview, results, suggested guidelines for the teaching of writing, meeting students' personal needs through writing activities, diagnostic guidelines and grid sheets, objectives and techniques, and a discussion of the oral reading of compositions. The second section offers techniques for the teaching of various grammatical principles and skills, such as transformations; noun, verb, and prepositional phrases; and appositives and dependent clauses. The appendix offers suggested writing and related reading activities and linguistic explanations of the aforementioned techniques. (LL)
