Here's your chance to improve your students' composition - through a solid understanding of how to use inductive approaches to writing! Divided into 3 sections, the book first argues that too many programs turn writing into a formulaic activity and lays the argument out by contrasting the formulaic approach - a kind of deductive philosophy - with the open inquiry of induction. The next section gets into the specifics of the inductive method: how induction can be taught, what students must first do as they approach their material inductively, and how to use induction to structure specifics. It also details specific ways to teach style and voice, along with some refreshing ways to approach diction, syntax, tone, and punctuation and argues again for an expanded writing program, specifically in the instruction of analysis. The final section addresses the "What now?" issue and works toward helping teachers see the importance of sequenced units based around skills. And to supplement the book, the author has included an incredibly practical CD-ROM, full of downloadable handouts and dozens of student samples drawn from the continuum of writing projects. This is one resource sure to help make writing a pleasure for you and your students... to support skill-based instruction as the most effective way to develop methodologies... and to turn your classroom into a community of explorers who find writing essential to developing thought.
