Speaking and writing, K-12 : classroom strategies and the new research by Christopher J Thaiss( Book )

6 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To translate the recent research in writing and oral communication into useful suggestions for classroom practice, to focus on ways teachers can help their students grow as writers and speakers, and to stress activities that do not isolate the language arts into units and sever skills from content learning, the articles in this book were prepared by teachers, researchers, and writers. The nine articles are (1) Learning Better, Learning More: In the Home and Across the Curriculum," by Ann Jeffries-Thaiss and Christopher J. Thaiss; (2) "Talking and Writing: Building Communication Competence," by Donald L. Rubin and Kenneth J. Kantor; (3) "Thinking Visually about Writing: Three Models for Teaching Composition, k-12," by Charles Suhor; (4) "Oral Communication in the Elementary Classroom," by Barbara S. Wood; (5) "Writing Growth in Young Children: What We are Learning from Research," by Marcia Farr; (6) "Thinking Together: Interaction in Children's Reasoning," by Jana Staton; (7) "Using the New Technologies in Language Communication Education," by Nancy S. Olson; (8) "Integrating the Language Arts," by R.R. Allen and Robert W. Kellner; and (9) "Assessing Children's Speaking, Listening, and Writing Skills," by Linda Reed. (Crh)

Engaged writers and dynamic disciplines : research on the academic writing life by Christopher J Thaiss( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book shows faculty and student writers taking risks with form and ideas as they weigh the demands of writing in the academy with their own passions for learning and self-expression. Thaiss and Zawacki demonstrate that academic disciplines are dynamic spaces that accommodate a variety of alternative styles and visions, even as they respect careful, systematic research."--Jacket

PERSPECTIVES ON WRITING SERIES, EDITED BY SUSAN H. MCLEOD Emerging from the International WAC/WID Mapping Project, WRITING PROGRAMS WORLDWIDE: PROFILES OF ACADEMIC WRITING IN MANY PLACES is meant to inform decision-making by teachers, program managers, and college/university administrators considering how writing can most appropriately be defined, managed, funded, and taught in the places where they work. WRITING PROGRAMS WORLDWIDE offers an important global perspective to the growing research literature in the shaping of writing programs. The authors of its program profiles show how innovators at a diverse range of universities on six continents have dealt creatively over many years with day-to-day and long-range issues affecting how students across disciplines and languages grow as communicators and learners. In these profiles, we see teachers and researchers relying on colleagues and on transnational scholarship to build initiatives that are both well suited to their specific environments and can serve as regional and often global models. Their struggles and achievements offer insights to colleagues in similar locales and across borders who seek to establish, enhance, and assess their own work as designers of writing programs. An introduction and three section essays by the editors illuminate themes that inform this collection. Growing networks of initiators and scholars and survey results from the International WAC/WID Mapping Project exemplify the argument of this collection for transnational exchange and collaboration. CHRIS THAISS is Clark Kerr Presidential Chair and Professor in the University Writing Program at the University of California, Davis. GERD BRÄUER directs the distance-learning program for teachers at the Writing Center at the University of Education in Freiburg, Germany. PAULA CARLINO is a researcher with the National Council of Scientific and Technical Research, CONICET, at the University of Buenos Aires. LISA GANOBCSIK-WILLIAMS is Head of the Centre for Academic Writing at Coventry University. APARNA SINHA is pursuing her PhD in Education at the University of California, Davis, with designated emphases in Writing Studies and in Second Language Acquisition
