Techniques for Improving Student Writing and Thinking Skills in Text-Heavy Courses.
Marra, James L.; And Others
After an introduction by James L. Marra explaining the Intellectual Heritage Program at the College of Art and Sciences at Temple University (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), this paper presents four brief faculty essays describing various techniques that the writers use in their classes in the program. The techniques discussed in the paper are tailored to the text-heavy and writing-intensive nature of the courses, and tend to abbreviate the writing process in many ways, while at the same time paying close attention to the need for students to write often and under the specific guidance of faculty. Essays in the paper are: "Impromptus, Journals, and Essays" (Neil Big); "Assuming Standpoints" (Tania M. Calvimontes); "Using Summary/Paraphrase Exercises To Improve Reading/Writing Skills" (Paul Marasa); and "The One-Page Paper" (Dianne Perkins). (RS)
