How To Encourage the Writing Process in Primary Grades.
Noting that educators need to capture the interest of primary students early on to make lifelong writers out of them, this paper discusses ways to encourage the writing process in the primary grades. The paper discusses the philosophy of the writing process, what experts say about writing, setting up the environment, writing with lower primary grades, writing with upper primary grades, topic choice, invented spellings, conferences, editing and revising, new directions, publishing, writing across the curriculum, and problems. The paper concludes that the success of encouraging the writing process in the primary grades depends largely on the teacher. Encouraging the writing process in the primary grades may be difficult but it is important. Contains 22 references. (RS)
