A Sampler from the NCTE Idea Exchange.
National Council of Teachers of English, Urbana, IL.
Reflecting the thought and work of many classroom English teachers, the activities presented in this booklet are a sample of ideas exchanged at the 1980 convention of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) held in Cincinnati, Ohio. The suggested activities are grouped into four categories: (1) a miscellany of writing assignments that reflects the importance of writing for audiences outside the classroom and other than the teacher; (2) assignments for using words with precision and fluency, and for fun; (3) activities for teaching literary genres, focusing on particular authors, and matching students and texts; and (4) evaluation and review activities that capitalize on the heightened motivation of the pretest situation.
