A Guide to the Teacher's Role in the Writing Program.
Haugen, Nancy S., Ed.; And Others
Focusing on the teacher's role in helping students to be creative in writing while expressing themselves more clearly, concisely, and accurately, the first four chapters of this guide offer a simple three-step process with strategies for teachers to follow when teaching writing. First, the guide discusses how the teacher can more thoroughly "set the stage" during the prewriting phase. Second, it shows how the teacher can actively participate in the composing phase, serving as an accessible reference for students. Third, the guide outlines how the teacher can transfer responsibility to students for proofreading and revising their own papers. Fourth, it suggests a follow-up to these three steps by including evaluation and delivery of the finished product to its intended audience. Each of the three steps, plus follow-up, includes a discussion of the teacher's role, strategies, and examples. The second half of the guide consists of two long chapters that offer writing ideas for teachers of other subjects and includes sample lessons for math and children's literature at the elementary level; home economics, English, social studies, and health at the middle school level; and a research project and science lab report for the high school level. Appendixes include a data chart for helping students organize reports and various evaluation guide sheets. (HOD)
