Self-Heuristics and the Writer's Self Discovery.
Petrick, Joanne F.
A four-part heuristic model seeks to enhance teacher and student-writer awareness of the significance of the self as writer. The questions in the heuristic examine the relationships between the self and the self as writer, between the self and the subject matter, between the self and the audience, and between the self and the form of the composition. Exercises that teachers can use in conjunction with this heuristic include the completion of a writing inventory by the students and a discussion of the inventory in the classroom, writing and discussing short paragraphs about student problems with writing and writing teachers, and reading about the writing processes/difficulties of established or famous writers. (A writing inventory and the heuristic model for self-analysis in the writing process are attached.) (RL)
