Group Inquiry Techniques for Teaching Writing.
The small size of college composition classes encourages exciting and meaningful interaction, especially when students are divided into smaller, autonomous groups for all or part of the hour. This booklet discusses the advantages of combining the inquiry method (sometimes called the discovery method) with a group approach and describes specific grouping techniques and their accompanying teaching strategies. Included is a sample form for student evaluation of group performance. (JM)
