Teaching Writing with Small Groups.
Strong, Gregory
Thought Currents in English Literature, v66 p129-52 Dec 1993
Until recently, writing instruction had been dominated by an emphasis on rhetorical forms, rules, and written products. This view has been superseded for the most part by a mode of instruction whereby teachers assist students in developing planning and revising skills, with less emphasis on grammatical rules. Similar trends are evident in second language instruction, where brainstorming, word mapping, journal writing, sentence combining, and peer evaluation activities are being used to help students develop planning and revising skills in the target language. Many of these activities are especially effective when used in small group instruction. Examples and discussions of these activities are included. Contains 42 references. (MDM)
