Writing across the Curriculum.
Fleming, Margaret, Ed.
Arizona English Bulletin, v27 n1 Fall 1984
Noting that in order to introduce and maintain writing across the curriculum programs in the schools English teachers must unite with colleagues to stress learning of all kinds, and that recommendations for the use of writing in content areas do not frighten away students who are apprehensive about writing, the articles in this focused journal issue explore the use of writing in content areas and existing programs. The essays deal with school and district programs, working with students across the curriculum, writing and language in the content areas, and writing beyond the curriculum. The titles of the essays and their authors are as follows: (1) "Writing across the Curriculum: The Marana Experience" (Yvonne Merrill); (2) "Sharing a Successful Writing Program" (Mark F. Goldberg); (3) "Writing across the Curriculum at the University of Arizona" (Diane Clymer and Duane H. Roen); (4) "The Writing Center as Center in Writing-across-the-Curriculum" (Diana George); (5) "Coherence and Commitment: Responding to Student Writing in the Disciplines" (Virginia Nees-Hatlen); (6) "Information and Visual Properties: a Matrix Representation" (Gene Washington); (7) "The Library Research Paper: For the Term, during the Term, and throughout the Term" (Samuel J. Rogal); (8) "Teaching Research Skills: Two New Research Texts" (Regina Rinderer); (9) "Fringe Benefits" (David C. Nelson); (10) "Language across the Curriculum" (Christopher Thaiss); (11) "The Arts in Language Arts: Activities Relating Visual Art to the Language Arts on the Elementary School Level" (Willet Ryder and Eleanor Ryder); (12) "The Language Arts and Music: Recent Research" (Ruth Zinar); (13) "The Writing Process in the Elementary Social Studies Program" (Frances B. Cacha); (14) "'Writing in the Social Sciences' by Joyce S. Steward and Marjorie Smelstor" (reviewed by Mary Katherine Ray); (15) "'Writing to Learn?' But We've Scarcely Begun" (James P. Beck); (16) "Writing and the Real World" (Kent Forrester); (17) "Corrections Personnel: Individualizing the Workshop" (Eleanor M. Hoffman); and (18) "Myth or Reality: The Value of English in the Working World" (Charles R. Duke and Ruth Ann Futrell). The journal concludes with a series of suggested class activities. (HTH)
