qPeer Response Groups in Action extends the work begun in Karen Spear's Sharing Writing (Boynton/Cook, 1988). The book explores classroom applications of collaborative writing and learning at the secondary school level, with each chapter detailing a start-to-finish collaborative learning project designed to apply to numerous classroom settings.q qRooted in the conviction that writing teachers need more than theories if they are to make meaningful changes in their teaching, Peer Response Groups in Action presents the stories of eleven English teachers, grades 7 through 12, and their efforts to create communities of writers by making collaboration central. A concluding section focuses on response groups in college writing courses. Secondary teachers, and instructors of college writing, will find a rich palette of techniques and insights into how to foster and maintain effective writing groups.q qThe contributors are veteran secondary English teachers who have drawn on their experiences in the National Writing Project to cultivate a spirit of reflective artistry toward their teaching. Chapters include the uses of response groups in a variety of English courses, from literature to the research paper, and in a variety of settings, from the conventional classroom to the computer lab. The chapters are illustrated with drafts and revisions of student writing, case studies, transcripts and analyses of students in response groups, as well as writing assignments that help students develop the skills and attitudes that make response groups work.q qTeaching writing as a collaborative process moves instruction to the edge of what we know about composing, to the edge of what is familiar and comfortable to teachers, and to the edge of conventionally sanctioned expectations among colleagues, students, parents, and administrators. Peer Response Groups in Action is a series of explorations of what it means to teach and learn in this most challenging yet rewarding type of writing classroom.q--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
