8 p. 
Summary

Students should be encouraged and taught how to write more effectively. This may be accomplished by involving them in two types of writing--the journal and the essay. The student is encouraged to record in his journal what he did and thought during the day, regardless of the trivialities. The journal is never evaluated by the instructor unless the student specifically requests it, but it is used later in writing the essays. The instructor works closely with the student during the initial stage to help him decide on a thesis statement that he can develop with specific examples and evidence. To avoid spending too much time in pointing out mechanical errors in the final draft, the teacher calls attention to these problems during the early writing stages. Style is more important in the final writing. The student submits the final draft along with a cassette tape to enable the instructor to record his reaction to the essay. (SW)
