Topics covered in the prewriting section include listening skills; thinking, speaking, and writing; interviewing; storytelling and spoken experience; perception skills; awakening the senses; and synectics. Topics covered in the drafting section include the autobiography, power writing, composite story-makers, letter writing, poetry structuring, poetry writing, writing across the curriculum, putting history in perspective with the living time line, happy holidays, and writing across the curriculum with a focus on science. Topics covered in the editing and publishing section include revising, elements of style, beginning writing and sentence lifting, peer proofreading, colorful words, playing with modifiers, teaching grammar and mechanics through writing, publishing books, and young authors programs. Topics covered in the systems section include coping with the paperload, writing evaluation, and using computers in the writing process. (HOD)
