The Examination Years: Writing in Geography, History and Social Studies.
This is one in a series of eight discussion pamphlets produced by the Writing Across the Curriculum Project dealing with some of the issues connected with writing in the schools and their relation to learning. This pamphlet is specifically concerned with writing in the areas of geography, history and the social studies for the "teacher as examiner." Among the topics discussed in the six chapters are the current situation; the aims and objectives of two new courses in geography and the humanities; disconnected writing; connected writing, involving students working from both first-hand and second-hand sources of information; and changes in emphasis in the kinds of writing being required.
