Strategies for Teaching the Composition Process.
Koch, Carl; Brazil, James M.
Based on the premise that students have a wealth of resources they can tap for their writing, this book presents a series of practical, student-centered strategies for use in high school and college composition classes. The exercises are grouped in four sets: the comfort zone (strategies for use in the early part of the composition course), prewriting, the writing stage, and the postwriting stage. Appendixes discuss setting priorities for diagnosing student writing and diagnosing dialect features in student writing. (AA)
