Summary

The intent of this guide is to encourage teachers to have students write, both formally and informally, on a systematic basis. Three types of writing are emphasized: (1) journal writing; (2) research paper writing; and (3) essay writing. The section on journal writing includes a handout for the class explaining the purpose for journal writing and procedures to be followed in keeping a class journal. Different procedures for maintaining the journal and guidelines for journal writing are included in this section. The use of learning logs to improve learning in all subjects is discussed, and suggested writing topics for students are provided. Standards for writing research papers are outlined in the next section. Examples of the title page, topic outlines, brainstorm outlines, table of contents, end notes, and bibliography are provided for distribution to students. An evaluation sheet and procedures for teaching research writing are detailed. The section on essays includes activity sheets for writing essays on several different English/social studies topics, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Huckleberry Finn, Social Darwinism, the roaring twenties; and technological change. Also, rubrics for grading essays are explicated. (SM)
