Selected Papers from the 1982 Conference "New York Writes: Kindergarten through College" (New York, New York, April 3, 1982).
Kwalick, Barry, Ed.; And Others
Presenting sound instructional strategies and writing theories, these proceedings of a conference held at Marymount Manhattan College address the needs of writing teachers at all educational levels. Following an introduction outlining the conference and the "New York Writes" project, the keynote address discusses the renewed interest in taking writing seriously. The 15 conference papers are arranged in four areas, the first group of which stresses the importance of articulation, both vertically from elementary school through college and horizontally through a single institution. The second group examines curricular materials and research in English as a second language instruction, while the third group showcases the writing processes of students at work. The fourth group reflects the theme implicit throughout the proceedings: all language experiences, from the mundane to the most artistic, can be used in writing classes. (HTH)
