Reading and Writing in the Curriculum.
Ediger, Marlow
There are many kinds of writing activities for pupils. Pupils need to develop proficiency for a variety of types of writing, such as creative writing and poetry, writing in journals, writing about personal experiences, writing an outline, writing an opinion, writing on how something should be done, writing and problem solving, writing to inform, writing to describe, narrative writing, writing to assert, writing an evaluation essay, writing business and friendly letters, writing to persuade, and finding time to write. With writing experiences, pupils engage in reading also. Writing and reading cannot be separated. The reading and writing curriculum correlate well with each other. In addition, there are a number of ways to motivate writers to increase proficiency in print discourse. A quality program of evaluation needs to be in evidence to appraise pupil progress in the language arts and reading. (RS)
