Speaking and Writing, K-12: Classroom Strategies and the New Research.
Thaiss, Christopher J., Ed.; Suhor, Charles, Ed.
To translate the recent research in writing and oral communication into useful suggestions for classroom practice, to focus on ways teachers can help their students grow as writers and speakers, and to stress activities that do not isolate the language arts into units and sever skills from content learning, the articles in this book were prepared by teachers, researchers, and writers. The nine articles are (1) Learning Better, Learning More: In the Home and Across the Curriculum," by Ann Jeffries-Thaiss and Christopher J. Thaiss; (2) "Talking and Writing: Building Communication Competence," by Donald L. Rubin and Kenneth J. Kantor; (3) "Thinking Visually about Writing: Three Models for Teaching Composition, K-12," by Charles Suhor; (4) "Oral Communication in the Elementary Classroom," by Barbara S. Wood; (5) "Writing Growth in Young Children: What We are Learning from Research," by Marcia Farr; (6) "Thinking Together: Interaction in Children's Reasoning," by Jana Staton; (7) "Using the New Technologies in Language Communication Education," by Nancy S.
