Teaching Writing Genres Across the Curriculum: Strategies for Middle School Teachers
Susan Lee Pasquarelli
IAP, 2006 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 210 pages
As you use the chapters in this book to enhance your teaching, feel free to experiment with the different teaching events presented in each chapter. Also, as your students begin their work producing writing genre by genre, be sure to keep exemplary essays to use as models for new students to read and examine. The chapter authors of this volume wrote the model essays, but all suggest that once you have generated student essays, use those to help other students conceptualize the genre. Also worthy of note is that all model essays included in this book are written using the Modern Language Association (Gibaldi, 2003) style. Real teachers using teaching events from real middle school classrooms collaborated on this book. We hope it inspires you to experiment with genre writing instruction in your own classroom.
