Creative approaches to sentence combining by William Strong( Book )

Summarizing the wealth of recent research on sentence combining as an effective method of teaching students to tighten and vary their written sentences, this booklet explains how and why sentence combining works. The first half of the booklet provides background information on sentence combining, exploring the basis for the claim that sentence combining enhances sentence writing by drawing on built-in linguistic competence, and arguing for a much broader definition of sentence combining. This section also discusses seven instructional issues concerning the use of sentence combining, and lists ten assumptions that seem to underlie the sentence combining approach. The second half of the booklet outlines many ways to use sentence combining in the writing class. This section first deals with cued sentence combining, of the kind popularized by F. O'Hare, then shows how open exercises might be introduced and used in a middle school classroom. It also deals with such practical matters as orchestrating in-class projects, handling "mistakes," and creating various types of sentence combining. The focus then shifts to a variation of pattern practice that may help special students, topics such as grammar, usage/mechanics, and sentence economy. Finally the section moves into arenas more explicitly rhetorical--style, recombining, and generative exercises, the problem of context, and analytic activities of different kinds. (Hth)

Coaching writing : the power of guided practice by William Strong( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coaching is the central activity in the "game" of teaching, and it is an activity that can have a lifetime effect on language learners. This book presents a "coaching approach" to instruction in written language--an approach that is eclectic, pragmatic, synthetic. The approach in the book centers on finding balance--ways of working smarter, not harder--and thus reducing the risk of burnout in teaching. Chapters in the book are intended as resources, not as curriculum sequences. The first chapter discusses the author/educator's work with basic writers and how he came to field test and use sentence-combining exercises. The second chapter provides a research-based rationale for given-language activities and illustrates many activities for connecting such work to instruction in writing and literature. The third chapter explores the issue of error in written language, outlines ideas for securing student involvement, and offers useful methods for teaching proofreading. Other chapters cover everything from paragraphing and "voice lessons" to strategies for peer-response groups, rubrics, self-assessment, and successfully managing the paper load. (Contains 146 references.) (Nka)
