School/College Partnership Philosophy.
Maris, Mariann
The issues confronting education today challenge educators on all levels and make it more imperative that colleges, school boards, and administrations work together. Collaboration on writing projects between college writers and elementary school writers, and between freshmen English high school writers and college writers at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee have proved to be valuable for everyone involved. The project began in 1988 as the outgrowth of a course called "Strategies of Academic Writing." A joint writing project defines an audience for the students involved: the elementary students or high school freshmen know they are addressing college students, and vice versa. The collaborative project also offers opportunities for editing and revision, and provides students with a sense of purpose and direction for their writing. (A list of resources available in Wisconsin and a list of workshop presenters are appended.) (CR)
