Teaching the Writing Process in High School. Standards Consensus Series.
Hutchinson, Jamie, Ed.
This book, part of a series which serve as guides for K-12 teachers who are striving to align lively, classroom-tested practices with standards, gathers together brief articles spotlighting suggestions for effective instruction. Beginning with activities that help students think through the audience and purpose for their writing, this book offers a wide range of classroom experiences that take students through pre-writing and drafting, peer editing and self-editing, and revision. Throughout the book the emphasis is on the classroom as a writing community and the student as an increasingly skilled and confident writer. The organization of the book aims to provide a strong conception of teaching the writing process and some useful pathways for appropriate classroom practice--an underlying assumption is that writing process instruction is a teaching model that makes use of the understanding of how real-world composing occurs.
