Organization of Writing

The purpose of this blog is to summarize articles on teaching English/language arts, from kindergarten through college, published in English education journals from the past.

Topic: Organization of Writing

Title: “Interacting with a Reader: Using the Strip Story to Develop Reciprocity.” Chris Hall. College Composition and Communication (October 1988), 353-356. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English.

Summary: Duplicate a short essay and cut the paragraphs apart. In small groups, each student is given a paragraph and then together the group discusses how to reassemble the essay. They then try to explain why they put it together as they did.
