The Writing Process in Health Care.
This learning module is intended to improve the writing and business communications skills of individuals working in health care occupations. The module, which is designed to be presented in a 6-week course of twice weekly 2-hour sessions, targets an audience with basic grammar and punctuation skills but no formal introduction to the process of writing. Included in the module are nine lessons that are structured so as to walk employees through a simple five-step writing process from generating ideas to developing their final written form. The following topics are covered in the individual lessons: freewriting; brainstorming and organization; guided writing, the relevancy test, and sentence types; simple and compound sentences and first drafts; parts of a paragraph and paragraph organization; cause and effect, comparison and contrast, simple listing paragraphs, and transition words; the revision process; editing; and the final draft and evaluation. Each lesson includes some or all of the following: objective, learning activities, quiz, instructional text and/or transparency masters, teaching notes, and practice exercises. Concluding the module is an answer section. (MN)
