A Work of ARTE: The Newsletter of the Assembly of Rural Teachers of English, 1993.
Work of ARTE, v3 n1-3 Spr, Sum, Fall 1993
This document consists of the three issues of the ARTE newsletter published during 1993. This newsletter describes organizational objectives and activities of the Assembly of Rural Teachers of English (ARTE), and presents articles of interest to rural English teachers. Articles discuss: (1) promoting and capitalizing on positive feelings of family among rural school staff; (2) a schoolwide business venture at Lamoni (Iowa) Middle School, in which students controlled all aspects of management, production, and sales; (3) "The New Yorker" Education Program, and how the magazine can be used in rural high school English classes; (4) subject matter as a vehicle rather than a focus of learning; (5) a study of the writing experiences and attitudes of Coastal Carolina College freshmen; (6) the importance of meaningful writing assignments for student attitudes and outcomes; (7) new resources to enrich English instruction, particularly "Ideas for the Working Classroom," which is volume 27 of a National Council of Teachers of English series on classroom practices in teaching English; and (8) a fifth grade class's experiences in creative writing. Materials related to the organization include discussions of organizational goals and the role of ARTE in educational improvement efforts, the ARTE constitution, proposals for organizational action to improve rural education, membership information, meeting minutes, tips for influencing public policy, workshop announcements, and a member autobiography.
