Taking the Rote Out of Writing.
Boiarsky, Carolyn
Principal, v63 n1 p32-36 Sep 1983
Traditionally writing is taught in three segments: discourse, syntax, and grammar. Research in the 1970s questions this and shows that formal grammar study does little to improve student writing. Some educators are now showing that students learn English structure and grammar best as they find they need it through their own writing experiences. (MD)
