The second section, "Writing Approaches, Ideas and Assignments," contains six articles covering such subjects as writing workshops, warmup exercises for writing short stories, and a process for teaching detail. The four articles in the third section, "Classroom Environment and Teacher Philosophy: An Overview," report on the beliefs and specific practices of successful writing teachers and programs.
