Key Strokes: A Guidebook for Teaching Writing with Computers.
Raupp, Magda; And Others
This guide is the result of three projects that have been working to address the problem of intergenerational illiteracy in writing. While writing skills are limited among the general population, they are even more limited among limited-English-speaking students (both school-aged and adult learners). The guidebook is a self-help manual for teachers interested in helping such students write better. The guide offers ideas on how to help students manage the writing process; provides strategies for helping students generate ideas, develop audience awareness, and compose; and gives hints on encouraging students to revise papers they have already begun. The guide provides general information on the writing process as well as specific suggestions, examples, strategies, and procedures for an effective writing program. An introductory section provides an overview of research findings in writing. Implications for teaching writing are examined in section II. Subsequent sections focus on aspects of writing instruction. A 32-item bibliography is appended. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
