A Guide to Using the Field Work Technique to Teach Writing.
Smelstor, Marjorie, Ed.
This guide to teaching composition through fieldwork is the result of research on student writing similar to Eliot Wigginton's "Foxfire" magazine and other regional products. Following a review of the literature, a step-by-step guide to gathering support from both the school administration and the community for a fieldwork writing project is outlined, along with suggestions for evaluating the student writing that results from such a project. Lesson plans are presented for several writing projects at the elementary and secondary levels, and a sample interview technique is suggested. (AEA)
