Implementation of a Publishing Center To Enhance the Writing Process for Primary Students.
Wasson, Karen L.
A practicum was designed to motivate primary students to increase the quantity and improve the quality of their writing. Publication of student works was the prime motivating factor. Other objectives were to develop in students a more positive attitude toward writing and gain the agreement of teachers that the publishing of their students' written work would enhance their classroom writing programs. After 12 weeks of the implementation of the publishing center, the quantity and quality of writing increased. Also, student surveys indicated a more positive attitude toward writing, and teachers agreed that the publication of students' works enhanced their writing programs. The publishing center will continue to operate in future years and will be expanded to include kindergarten and grades four and five. (One table of data is included; 28 references, an attitude survey for teachers, a writing attitude scale for students, a sign-up sheet for the publishing center, and a writing process handbook for teachers are attached.)
