Effective Workplace Writing. Writing I.
Diller, Janelle
This curriculum module contains lesson plans and application activities that were developed for the first of two companion courses to help adult students build writing skills by emphasizing writing as a process involving generating ideas through revising, editing, and self-critiquing and by teaching basic grammar, punctuation, and spelling strategies in the context of actual usage in the workplace. The module consists of six sections that are each designed to be presented in a single session. The session topics are as follows: the importance of identifying the audience and purpose of writing; brainstorming, organizing ideas, freewriting, and revising; sentence structure and punctuation; paragraph structure; the process and importance of revision; and the importance of making writing as specific and vivid as possible. The module is divided into separate sections for each session. Each section contains the following: module rationale, learning intentions, course outline, student evaluation sheets/log, transparency masters, curriculum notes, course outline, and student handouts (including word lists, information sheets, writing samples).
