Teaching Writing That Works

A Group Approach to Practical English
Eric S. Rabkin and Macklin Smith
An innovative guidebook for teaching writing as a group process


Teaching Writing That Works, a guidebook for composition teachers, was developed at the University of Michigan as the result of a highly successful course designed by Eric S. Rabkin and Macklin Smith. The course is unusual in concept and practice, involving a workshop that uses peer editing and evaluation in emphasizing the common aspects of written and spoken communication. This volume outlines the curriculum and teaching techniques established in the course, including the detailed discussion of the workshop practicum and its application.
