PlayWrite.
Amodeo, Janis
This report describes the PlayWrite Program, which was developed in the Montville Township School District, New Jersey, to encourage children in grades K-6 to write. The primary objectives of the program are to increase students' motivation to write; to improve their writing skills through the process of brainstorming, composing, revising, and editing; to help students learn how to generate topics for writing; to increase their self-confidence in conversational fluency; and to expose students to word processing as an aid to written composition. The report contains a review of the literature for language and nonverbal learning, cooperative learning, and computer-assisted instruction; a description of the program; sample activities; and evaluation design and results. Thirty-seven references are appended. (MS)
