A New Look at the Interactive Writing Classroom: Methods, Strategies, and Activities to Engage Students
Teaching students how to write more effectively is a goal that English teachers of all levels share. How can you motivate your students to produce their best writing, think critically, and participate more actively in class? How can you conduct workshops in your classroom that create a more dynamic, interactive, student-centered environment? This practical, comprehensive guide to teaching writing offers English teachers a variety of new, classroom-tested instructional activities, workshops, lesson plans, journal entries, teaching strategies, and creative assignments to use in their classrooms, including modified mini-lessons and group discussions that engage students and stimulate critical thinking. Emphasizing the proven benefits of cooperative learning, the book includes step-by-step instructions for special writing workshops on invention strategies, critical reading, thesis statements, draft feedback, narrative writing, debates, outlining, introductions, proofreading and editing, and much more. Topics also include how to coach students, manage problematic students, attack plagiarism, and deal with student evaluations.
