Writing Workshops and the Teaching of Reading.
Shuman, R. Baird
This paper discusses three types of writing experiences, "Writing Roulette,""The Even-Steven Swap Game," and "The Open-Ended Story with a Slant," that can be used in a writing workshop for disabled readers at the secondary level. Each activity emphasizes writing but provides motivation for students to read each other's work. Students will have little or no difficulty in the reading since both the vocabulary and sentence structure are at the students' level. From these experiences the students can build self-confidence and can be exposed to a broad variety of language experiences that engage their interests and imaginations. (MB)
