Composing as the Curriculum: A Guide for Instruction in Written Composition, Grades K-12.
Blake, Robert W.; Tuttle, Frederick B., Jr.
The Albion (New York) school district provides this guide to written composition instruction in its kindergarten through grade 12 curriculum because of the importance and necessity of writing, not only as a school activity but also as a lifelong intellectual, self-actualizing, and daily-living activity. Following a brief overview that summarizes the rationale for "composing as the curriculum," a scope and sequence chart considers topics and lessons for each grade, listing them by mode of discourse (description, narration, exposition, persuasion, and poetry). The remainder of the guide details sample writing activities drawn from the scope and sequence chart, presenting the activities by the steps in the "Albion Model" of the composing process (stimulus, prewriting, writing, workshopping, rewriting, and submission to an audience).
