The materials in this manual include the activities and creative writing samples from a summer inservice writing skills workshop conducted for 32 teachers from seven school districts. The outlined writing activities cover a variety of topics that involve describing real and imaginary objects, naming objects in a newly created world, writing poetry using printed words from the newspaper, composing shopping lists for characters from children's stories, creating slogans for campaign buttons, and writing according to the forms used in obituaries, television guides, and advertisements. The manual also contains detailed lesson plans developed by the workshop participants, a discussion of the place of basic skills in writing, suggestions for evaluating student writing, a bibliography of teacher resources on writing, and ideas for expository writing that require using the community and school as resources.
