Developing Basic Writing Competencies in the Elementary School: An Example of University and School System Cooperation.
Delph, Donna; And Others
Noting that few curriculum projects designed to teach effective writing skills have been evaluated through carefully planned, longitudinal research studies representing cooperative efforts between university and public school personnel, this report describes such a project. The report outlines (1) the purpose of the program, which was based on the premise that children learn to use language by actively generating it, and the steps in its implementation; (2) the research procedure employed to evaluate the first three years of the program and the results of that research; and (3) a curriculum model that demonstrates an effective working relationship between university and public school personnel. Appendixes contain materials used in the holistic evaluation of student writing samples, notes on building-centered testing programs in writing, and copies of two writing skills checklists. (FL)
