Kirby, Dan; Liner, Tom
The result of the belief that there is joy in teaching writing, and that students have the experiences and insights to produce good writing, this book synthesizes the authors' writing classroom experiences. The 18 chapters discuss a variety of topics, including the following: (1) the classroom environment; (2) student journals; (3) writing poetry; (4) good writing; (5) responding to student writing; (6) developing a sense of audience; (7) writing about literature; (8) revision; (9) expository writing; (10) grading and evaluation; and (11) publishing student writing. The final chapter of the book contains a list of writing instruction resources. (HTH)
