Conner, Angela M.; Moulton, Margaret R.
English Journal, v90 n1 p72-79 Sep 2000
Describes how the author used research booklets to be read by sixth graders, poetry books, and taking part in a city-wide writing competition with her eighth-grade students to combat a general apathy in many students' writing efforts. Suggests the projects spoke to individual interests, helped students find a purpose to write, and improved the quality of student work. (SR)
