Summary

A publication of the Primary English Teaching Association of Australia, this book argues that children should be taught how to write in the various genres or kinds of writing that are needed for different purposes. The contributors draw on their own experiences to show how teachers can develop their teaching of writing to realize the full potential of the process approach and at the same time draw upon insights associated with a genre approach. Chapters and their authors consist of the following: (1) "Building on the Process" (John Collerson); (2) "What Are These Genres, Anyway?" (John Collerson); (3) "Read Me Your Story..." (Jennifer Hammond); (4) "Let Me Demonstrate" (Helen Woodward); (5) "Writing in a Family Group Class" (Lee Pledger); (6) "Writing Reports in Year 4" (Elizabeth O'Connell); (7) "The Narrative Genre in Years 3 and 4" (Ross Weightman); (8) "Working with Factual Writing in Year 5" (Dallas Tonkin); (9) "Providing a Balance" (Lorraine Rowles with Jennifer Hammond); (10) "Writing across the Secondary School" (Bill Crowley); and (11) "Writing for Life" (John Collerson). Appended are a guide to factul materials for primary schools, suggested reading selections, and a list of 19 references. (MS)
