Reading, Writing and the Social Studies.
Ediger, Marlow
Pupils need variety in their writing experiences, and social studies writing involves writing across the curriculum as well as stressing positive attitudes and feelings of the learner. Subject matter should come from the pupil, and diverse learning opportunities should assist the pupil in acquiring the relevant facts, concepts, and main ideas necessary in writing. Within the context of the appropriate social studies lessons and units, methods of fostering student writing include: (1) creation of experience charts, showing selected cultural objects and students' reactions; (2) writing outlines; (3) using correlating library books; (4) writing diary, log, and journal entries; and (5) writing plays, poetry, and folklore.
