Writing Needs of Big City School Teachers.
Spanjer, Allan; Johnson, Regina
Teachers need to improve certain teaching and writing competencies if they are to improve student writing competencies. Teachers from the Atlanta school district were surveyed to determine their opinions for improving writing instruction. Survey results indicate that teacher education programs can be improved by: (1) making information on writing processes and teaching methods more accessible to teachers; (2) teaching of writing instruction to all teachers; (3) revising language arts textbooks to stress composition rather than mechanics; (4) involving parents and community in school writing programs; and (5) intensifying research on the processes of writing.
