Strategies for struggling writers by James L Collins( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are reluctant writers thinking about when they stare down at a blank page before them? Why do so many middle and high school students resort to jotting down whatever comes to mind, or to copying from books or other students? Offering fresh answers to these and other important questions, this book integrates cognitive and cultural considerations to help students who struggle with writing. Author James Collins draws upon extensive research to show that struggling writers are not deficient in language-learning abilities. Instead, he argues, they may prefer strategies for writing that are often suppressed in schools. Subject to cognitive and cultural preference, writing strategies are mental procedures used to solve problems encountered with writing - from spelling a word correctly, to organizing a paragraph, to planning a whole project

Communication patterns in classes for deaf students. -- by William Newton Craig( Book )

3 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To develop a system for making systematic observations of classroom communicative interaction, to provide guidelines for its utilization, and to suggest applications of this system to problems in the development of communication skills, 94 deaf children were directly observed in class interaction. An evaluation instrument was developed from the Flanders system and employed 20 categories and 11 modes of description. Results showed that in all grade levels the majority of communication was teacher initiated, but that at higher levels there was a gradual increase in student response and initiation. Questioning and informing were the two most frequently observed categories used by teachers in both language-dependent and specialized instruction; these categories were also the ones used most frequently by students in initiating communication. The oral mode was predominant at primary and intermediate levels in the day and residential schools in which data was gathered, but non-oral modes increased noticeably on the high school level in the residential school but not in the day school. Suggestions were that this instrument be used in further research in an effort to adjust the behavior of students and teachers. (Jm)
