Uptaught by Ken Macrorie( Book )

11 editions published between 1970 and 1996 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composition teachers who ask students to express something worthwhile and then deny them a true voice in which to say it--preferring instead the stiff, empty classroom language of "Engfish"--are to blame for student dissatisfaction and despair. Teachers should begin a writing course with the proper subject--the student--who learns to express himself best by first writing freely, recording random thoughts, and then focusing on a particular assignment, gradually increasing his probing for individual direction and forms. By giving their students this freedom and discipline, teachers can provide the stimulus, support, and respect which is crucial for learning and to which students are entitled as fellow humans. (A record of a college-composition teacher's experiences in the classroom, this book is made up of anecdotes, short essays, and samples of student writing.) The approaches illustrated in this book are incorporated into the author's textbook. "Telling Writing." (Mf)

Writing to Be Read. Revised Second Edition by Ken Macrorie( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The free-writing program presented in this book and illustrated with student writing samples emphasizes student writing which is alive and valuable and which is to be read by real persons, who respond. New material in this second edition focuses especially on these points, in three chapters: writing in and for a group of helping commenters (writers' third-best resource after their own experiences and writing skills), letting the subject choose the writer, and suggestions for teachers. A chapter on writing poems is also new in this edition. The other chapters discuss language, writing freely, good writing, tightening, deceiving oneself, fabulous realities, people talking, writing case histories, repeating, remembering childhood, revising and sharpening, creating form, playing with words, keeping a journal, writing secondhand, controlling sound, writing reports and columns, writing indirectly, the order of words, and observing conventions.
