The activities and suggestions presented in this document for developing students' writing skills are based on fifteen ideas outlined at the beginning of the book. Part one, focusing on writing within the English course, suggests activities for the following: using reproductions of primary sources, writing directed to a specific and significant audience, writing by contract, convergent and divergent thinking in writing assignments, basic skills, multimedia approach, cooperative writing, integrating writing within the elective, class anthologies, the diary and the journal, avoiding red pencil, sensory writing, role playing, and values clarification. Part two, dealing with writing outside the English course, contains organizational descriptions and forms developed for writing labs at two California schools. Part three discusses the contribution of classroom environment to writing instruction. (JM)
