Writing without teachers by Peter Elbow( Book )

35 editions published between 1953 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Writing Without Teachers, well-known advocate of innovative teaching methods Peter Elbow outlines a practical program for learning how to write. His approach is especially helpful to people who get stuck or blocked in their writing, and is equally useful for writing fiction, poetry, and essays, as well as reports, lectures, and memos. The core of Elbow's thinking is a challenge against traditional writing methods. Instead of editing and outlining material in the initial steps of the writing process, Elbow celebrates non-stop or free uncensored writing, without editorial checkpoints first, followed much later by the editorial process. This approach turns the focus towards encouraging ways of developing confidence and inspiration through free writing, multiple drafts, diaries, and notes. -- Back cover

Writing to learn : strategies for assigning and responding to writing across the disciplines( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of New Directions for Teaching and Learning traces the authors' move from a focus on disciplinary writing to a focus on students' learning. In these chapters, teachers of writing and teachers of other disciplines explore the use of different types of writing tasks - often called high stakes assignments and low stakes or writing to learn assignments. They see writing not only as improving students' communicative abilities in their disciplines but also as helping students to learn. And once faculty begin to think about students as learners, the road to good teaching is discernible. Writing not only makes learning more visible, it makes teaching more visible and brings teachers' existing practices into the foreground. The result often is a movement toward more reflective, active, and collaborative teaching as well as learning."--Jacket

Personally Speaking. Questions of Identity( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in Undetermined and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Questions of Identity' is part of a series of films from Media Education Foundation. Stuart Hall is a foundational figure in the influential interdisciplinary field known as cultural studies. In this stimulating and eloquent four-hour interview, conducted by the literary journalist Maya Jaggi and directed by Mike Dibb, Hall reflects on his life and career, talking personally and in depth about the trajectory of his work and how it has intersected with broader political movements. In a conversation both intimate and sweeping in scope, Hall describes his migration from Jamaica to England, his immersion in left-wing politics in London, the influence of Raymond Williams and E.P. Thompson on the evolution of his thought, and the context within which the early classic texts of cultural studies were written. Hall also shares his pessimism about the economic recession and his optimism about Barack Obama's victory. Future analysis of Hall's work, and of cultural studies in general, will need to take account of this fascinating and indispensable first-person account of his life and ideas. Broken into short sections to facilitate use in the classroom

How do ""illegal aliens"" chart the speech sounds of colloquial English? This book is timeless in offering an unusually direct entry into how a group of Mexican fruit pickers analyze their first encounter with local American speech in a tiny rural Midwestern community in the United States. Readers see close up how intelligently migrant workers help each other use what they already know-the alphabetic principle of one letter, one sound-to teach each other, from scratch, at the very first contact, a language which none of them can speak. They see how and why the strategies adult immigrants actua
