A Guide to Teaching the Importance of Audience and Subject.
Smelstor, Marjorie, Ed.
One of a series of guides to the teaching of writing at the elementary and secondary levels, this publication focuses on teaching the importance of audience and subject. An introductory statement on the need to make students aware of the audience for whom they are writing is followed by a brief overview of the research concerning audience/subject relationships and lists of pertinent student needs and instructional goals. Nine suggested learning activities are then outlined; the activities are designed to instruct students in such areas as identifying purposes for writing, identifying types of audiences, and constructing messages for given audiences. Lists of resources for teachers, of possible writing forms and audiences, and of magazines that publish children's writing are also provided. (GT)
