Review quote

Praise for the previous edition: "Teaching Students to Write has impressed me as something substantially different and above the other books on the teaching of writing....[Neman] has...created a book that is at once solid, deep, pedagogically appealing, and in many ways original."--Joseph M. Williams, University of Chicagoshow more

Back cover copy

When it was first published, Teaching Students to Write earned a reputation for doing just that - helping instructors and prospective instructors teach their students how to write effectively. It was - and is - a student-centered, research-based text that combines scholarly theory with practical pedagogy to offer teachers a rich variety of strategies to meet their students' diverse needs. Extensively updated to reflect current research and theoretical scholarship, this revised edition is enhanced by in-depth discussions of collaborative learning and extensive exemplification of experiential or discovery learning. It now includes a full chapter on invention and prewriting heuristics, some important new approaches to teaching revision, a chapter devoted to designing effective assignments, and a chapter on teaching the rhetorical analysis that incorporates whole language pedagogical concepts and current literary theory. This text puts special emphasis on reaching gifted students and nonstandard-dialect speakers and suggests workable techniques for conducting conferences, responding to papers and assessing them fairly. The second edition is even richer in pedagogical apparatus for both writing teachers and their students - including duplicable Student Guidelines, Teaching Strategies sidebars, and chapter-ending questions that encourage discussion and essay-writing.show more
