Writing without teachers by Peter Elbow( Book )

34 editions published between 1953 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,832 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 492 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

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
Landmark essays on speech and writing( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Classical rhetoric was originally all about speech; then it took an interest in writing. We are at a kind of mirror moment now. The present field of "composition and rhetoric" has been preoccupied with writing for the last fifty or more years, but finally people are looking again at speech and how it relates to writing. At this moment, then, when we are inheritors of research showing that writing can be thought of as different and yet not different from speech. In this volume, leading speech and writing expert, Peter Elbow, gathers a selection of classic essays that show the main streams of thinking that have gone on about speech and writing. Through the interdisciplinary essays included, he invites readers to think critically about the relationship between speech, writing, and our notion of literacy"--
