Summary

Based on courses showing teachers how to use many kinds of objects to teach writing and stimulated by ideas from teachers across the country, this booklet contains suggestions for helping students improve their writing. The booklet discusses writing about objects as a process involving the following steps: making observations and gathering data, trying out hypotheses (making guesses) and exploring relationships among ideas, checking to see if the evidence supports the conclusions and if the logical relationships among ideas are clear, asking others to read a draft to check its clarity for readers, incorporating others' suggestions or one's own new ideas into other drafts, and correcting a finished draft.
