The Journal book by Toby Fulwiler( Book )

14 editions published between 1987 and 1999 in English and held by 904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book journals are seen in every situation and from every angle, as if mounted on a slow turntable under a spotlight. The conclusion of most of the teachers and students using them is that they get people thinking, they help them test their own experience against the ideas of many others-- the authorities they're studying, their teachers, their fellow students... The payoffs from using journals in classrooms are here shown to be astounding. Students learn from making mistakes and half-forming ideas. They learn to think, not by doing exercises in a faddish "critical thinking" textbook, but by working their way through real questions, with real interest and real intent"--Back cover

Writing across the disciplines : research into practice by Art Young( Book )

7 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The impact of a writing-across-the-curriculum program on the professional life of a single university department and on the pedagogical life of an entire campus community is the focus of this book. The essays in the first section explain writing across the curriculum and provide a context for collective writing research. This section demonstrates the process by which an organized effort in writing-across-the-curriculum research can occur, and suggests the benefits of such an effort. The second section focuses on evaluation, describing the results of the six-year writing-across-the-curriculum program. Each chapter looks at a different area of impact, discusses how the investigations were made, and states the findings. The third section evaluates specific techniques (such as journals, peer groups, and poetry writing) in individual classes in such areas as psychology, biology, civil engineering, mathematics, and literature. The final section contains essays on the possibilities and the problems that arise in connection with such a program, academic and political as well as theoretical and practical. (El)

Each chapter contains practical ideas for using writing in the classroom, along with a discussion of the theories on which these ideas are based.

Chapter topics are arranged in the same order as they might be discussed at an interdisciplinary writing workshop, though each stands as a relatively independent essay

Fulwiler); (2) Responding to Fiction (A. Biddle and A. Shepherd; (3) Responding to Poetry (S. Poger); (4) Responding to Drama (J. Howe); and (5) Literary Criticism and Theory (J. Holstun). Part 2, "Writing as a Reader," contains the following chapters: (6) Writing Critical Essays (R. Warhol); (7) Writing Personal Essays (M. Dickerson); (8) Imaginative Writing and Risk Taking (W. Stephany); (9) Examining the Essay Examination (T. Magistrale); and (10) Writing Research (R. Sweterlitsch). A glossary, biographies of the contributors, and an index conclude the book. (Sr)
The letter book : ideas for teaching college English( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The assigning of letters in college classes has generally been limited to helping students learn how to write specific types of them. With The Letter Book, Sue Dinitz and Toby Fulwiler offer a better idea, proving what a valuable tool letters are for promoting classroom community, learning of content, understanding of genres, and literacy in general. Why letters? According to Dinitz and Fulwiler, letter writing is as natural and easy as writing ever gets; everyone knows how to write letters. Just as important, writing letters promotes a dialogical give and take between authors and ideas. And when the teacher or fellow students write letters, other voices can participate in the dialogue
The journal book for teachers of at-risk college writers( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educators across the grades and across the curriculum have long recognized the usefulness of journals to help student writers. But what about basic writers, learning-disabled students, and nontraditional and returning students? One of the values of journal writing is its accessibility, yet no one has seemed to consider how at-risk students might benefit. With this new collection, the first of its kind, Susan Gardner and Toby Fulwiler provide much-needed advice. The authors of these essays are all experienced teachers of at-risk writers, both at two- and four-year colleges. They know the at-risk students they are describing. Some readers will recognize the students as "basic" writers in basic writing courses. Others will find chapters written by writing center directors who serve a variety of students we might term as "at risk." There are also chapters from educators who work specifically with Deaf students, ADHD students, and learning-disabled students. Each one describes uses of the journal and the adjustments to the assignment that make the journal such an accessible and instructive writing genre
