The Art of Science Writing
Teachers & Writers Collaborative, 1989 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 206 pages
HIGHLIGHTS: This collaboration of Worsely and Mayer provides numerous fun approaches to the writing process-from note-taking to journal entries to essay completion. Many of the exercises use concepts like logic, basic math, permutations, the Fibonacci scale, and "Pascal's Triangle," as models on which to base poems, while other exercises emphasize writing about natural science, in an engaging way. Inspiring examples are provided, in the back of the book, from Jane Goodall, Carl Sagan, Margaret Mead, Bertrand Russell, Steven J. Gould, and Albert Einstein, among others. And an annotated bibliography, serves as a list of recommended reading for students and teachers alike.
