Level 1 Process ApproachStreaming Video - 2005
This program explores the process approach to writing instruction, asserting that the act of writing is more than simply the completion of a product; it is a complex, creative, and unpredictable progression of ideas and strategies. With commentary from veteran writing instructors - including Dr. Lois Matz Rosen, author of Within and Beyond the Writing Process in the Secondary English Classroom, and Michael Steinberg, author of The Writer's Way: A Process Approach to Writing - the program outlines specific group activities for each step in the process: invention, drafting, sharing work in progress, revising, and editing. Lively footage from high school and college classrooms shows instructors circulating among groups of highly engaged students, offering advice and suggestions through formative rather than summative evaluation. A stylish, inspiring guide to an effective and thoroughly tested teaching method, Teaching Writing provides vital preparation for any composition, journalism, or creative writing instructor. Recommended for teachers of grades 6-10. Correlates to English Language Arts standards and Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) Information.
