An Experiment in Encouraging Fluency. Curriculum Publication No. 8.
This booklet is one of a series of teacher-written curriculum publications launched by the Bay Area Writing Project, each focusing on a different aspect of the teaching of composition. Introductory sections discuss writing fluency and the goals and procedures of a high school writing workshop for noncollege preparatory students. The work of three representative students is presented in a case study account of the positive effects of the workshop approach on student writing interests and abilities, emphasizing the presentation of written work to peers for evaluation and feedback. An appendix contains samples of writing workshop materials and examples of student writing at the beginning and the end of the course. (RL)
