The Writing Corner.
Cheyney, Arnold B.
Assuming that effective writing instruction requires teachers with well-developed writing skills, sufficient classroom time set aside for quantity writing on a daily basis, careful and consistent evaluation, and emphasis on writing as communication, this guide offers teaching techniques that develop the theoretical, practical, and creative aspects of classroom writing instruction. Accompanied by illustrations and cartoons, the writing topics are organized under the following chapter headings: opportunities and directions for writing instruction; the history of writing; creating atmosphere for writing; handwriting; practical writing: simple forms and word groups; practical writing: expanded and complex forms; creating the classroom newspaper; creative writing: short stories and novels; poetry writing; publishing children's writing; and the teacher writes for profit. The appendix provides materials that can be duplicated for classroom use. (MAI)
