Writing It Right: A Writing Course for Police Officers.
Gravely, Mary Liles
Developed by educators from the Emily Griffith Opportunity School, this teacher's guide presents an 8-hour course in writing for police officers. The course is designed to help officers improve the accuracy and appearances of their reports and to help them take responsibility for becoming more independent writers. Each of the four lessons in the course focuses on an area of writing that will give the writer the tools to become a more accurate, concise communicator: sample reports and business letters; grammar, punctuation, and spelling; report writing and writing organization; and editing reports. Lessons consist of objectives, materials lists, time needed, learning activities, and handouts. An appendix contains additional sample reports that students can use to practice editing; handout answer keys are provided. Contains eight resources. (KC)
