Handbook for Writing School Newsletters.
Howley, Craig B.
This handbook, written for a workshop, is designed to help improve school newsletters. The first section of the handbook is an outline of the lecture given in the workshop. Subsequent sections discuss and illustrate: (1) basic principles of simple, functional writing; (2) the importance of time and practice; (3) five good writing habits; (4) useful alternatives to wordy phrases; (5) readability; and (6) two exercises to improve writing and editing. Finally, the last section of the handbook presents six models of simple, functional writing. Three of the models presented illustrate good writing for elementary school newsletters. The directory's appendix takes a close look at the process of revising and editing. (RS)
