Collaborative Writing Games.
Williams, Joan; Wason, Peter
This paper describes a classroom game designed to help students overcome their fear of writing. Two classes of top- and middle-ability adolescents were divided into pairs to work on a single composition. After the teacher proposed the initial sentence, the partners took turns writing sentences to complete the story. Although the collaborative stories compared well with the stories written by individuals, the paper stresses that the positive student reaction is the most important aspect of this project. Student comments and examples of the finished stories are included. (MAI)
