The Writing Project: Grades 7-12. Third Annual Golden Bell Awards Program.
Davey, Julie A.; Neil, Lois W.
To communicate the writing instruction techniques they learned at the California Writing Project, 11 teachers organized a district writing resource team offering workshops and inservice sessions to other writing teachers in their district. Among the results of this subsequent Glendale Writing Project are a renewed enthusiasm and cooperation among teachers, a writing resource handbook of innovative writing ideas and lesson plans for both elementary and secondary level teachers, and a significant improvement in student writing, noticeable even at the college level, that has generated top honors in writing and composition. Test scores have improved as well. The key to the success of this writing project has been the "dedication" of the writing resource team and the teachers, administrators, and parents who supported and implemented the program. (The project's extensive scope and sequence continuum for sophomore, junior, and senior level composition is included.) (HTH)
