Intellectual Nutrition for the Snack Food Junkie
Miller, Donna L.
Phi Delta Kappan, v96 n1 p59-63 Sep 2014
When writing projects have an authentic reader beyond the classroom teacher, students can see a direct connection between their lives and their literacy development. That connection is key to learning engagement and motivation. Using the inquiry model to teach technical writing is also important since students' lives outside school are filled with demands for critical thinking and knowledge application.
