Reaching the Reluctant Writer: Fast, Fun, Informational Writing Ideas
Maupin House Publishing, Inc., 2005 - 96 strán (strany)
Mike Artell rouses reluctant writers with 43 short, informational writing exercises that use humor to engage students and equip them with the skills they'll need to write clearly and effectively. Using "real world" texts like letters, advertising copy, resumes, and maps, Reaching the Reluctant Writer helps you encourage students to trust their own wit, stretch their creative muscle, and learn how to "think funny." Each inventive exercise challenges students to practice specific writing craft skills and includes a drawing component that develops visual literacy. The result is a valuable resource that blends humor and creativity with practical, real world writing practice.
