The Art of Teaching Writing, New Edition, has major new chapters on assessment, thematic studies, writing throughout the day, reading/writing relationships, publication, curriculum development, nonfiction writing and home/school connections. Annotation. When Lucy Calkins wrote the first edition of The Art of Teaching Writing, the writing workshop was a fledgling idea, piloted by a few brave innovators. Now, as she brings us this new edition, the writing workshop is at the foundation of language arts education throughout the English-speaking world. This new edition, then, could easily have been a restatement, in grander, more confident tones, of the original classic. Instead, it is an almost entirely new book. Clearly, during the time in which Calkins' original ideas have spread like wildlife, her focus has not been on articulating and defending those ideas, but on developing and rethinking them. Respecting and responding to the questions that have arisen as thousands of teachers establish writing workshops in their classrooms, and drawing upon the latest knowledge in the field and her own intimate understanding of classroom life, Calkins has re-thought every line and every facet of her original text. In this new edition, Lucy has major new chapters on assessment, thematic studies, writing throughout the day, reading-writing relationships, publication, curriculum development, non-fiction writing and home/school connections.

George Hillocks, Jr. starts with the basic assumption that writing is at the heart of education, and provides a metatheory to respond to this question: "What is involved in the effective teaching of writing at the secondary and college freshmen levels?" The author outlines a variety of theories, explains the bridges between them, and provides a coherent theoretical basis for thinking about the teaching of writing. This concern with theory and research is offset by his attention to the practical matters of the classroom; teachers are shown how to plan activities and sequences of activities that are appropriate for students who are within Vygotsky's "zone of proximal development".

Becoming an effective teacher can be quite painful and exhausting, taking years of trial and error. In The Art of Teaching, writer and critic Jay Parini looks back over his own decades of trials, errors, and triumphs, in an intimate memoir that brims with humor, encouragement, and hard-won wisdom about the teacher's craft.Here is a godsend for instructors of all levels, offering valuable insight into the many challenges that educators face, from establishing a persona in the classroom, to fostering relationships with students, to balancing teaching load with academic writing and research. Insight abounds. Parini shows, for instance, that there is nothing natural about teaching. The classroom is a form of theater, and the teacher must play various roles. A good teacher may look natural, but that's the product of endless practice. The book also considers such topics as the manner of dress that teachers adopt (and what this says about them as teachers), the delicate question of politics in the classroom, the untapped value of emeritus professors, and the vital importance of a settled, disciplined life for a teacher and a writer. Parini grounds all of this in personal stories of his own career in the academy, tracing his path from unfocused student--a self-confessed "tough nut to crack"--to passionate writer, scholar, and teacher, one who frankly admits making many mistakes over the years.Every year, thousands of newly minted college teachers embark on their careers, most with scant training in their chosen profession. The Art of Teaching is a perfect book for these young educators as well as anyone who wants to learn more about this difficult but rewarding profession.

Teachers everywhere are confronted with a problem. Whether at a small liberal arts college, major research university, or some other institute of learning, instructors are continually challenged to create smart, effective pedagogical techniques in order to be efficient in the classroom.The Art of College Teaching is a first: twenty-eight insider essays about this process by distinguished and highly acclaimed teachers of note from across the curriculum—including eleven Carnegie national award winners—grouped here to uncover common values, approaches, and even debates among today’s educators.Rather than a “rulebook” for good teaching, Professors Marilyn Kallet and April Morgan have assembled a wide variety of practitioner lore—what successful teachers have learned to do well and what they’re still seeking to master. From the embarrassing to the inspirational, contributors take us inside their classrooms to explain the “light-bulb moments” that form the bases of their teaching philosophies, making this collection reader-friendly, often humorous, and very real.Contributors take up a broad range of subjects: setting boundaries with students; teaching as performance; the pros and cons of lecture versus “active” learning; gaining students’ respect and keeping it; creativity in the classroom; encouraging diversity; and many others. The interdisciplinary approach allows for a stimulating mix of voices and kinds of expertise, from “takes on teaching” by Nobel Prize Laureate James Buchanan to coaching strategies from champion ice-skating instructor Robert Unger.Theories about the “right” way to teach abound, but like any art, teaching isn’t easily defined by guidelines or prevailing wisdom. A narrative, experiential approach to one of our most rewarding and demanding disciplines, The Art of College Teaching is a book to be of use. It is a handbook of ideas that will empower new teachers and refresh those who have been in the trenches for years.

The Art of Writing Drama is an indispensable textbook for wherever writing for the stage is taught, but also serves as a foundational book for any student taking courses in performance media - radio, television and film. Coupling theory with practice, the book opens with a survey of the current methodologies of teaching playwriting and of textual analysis. The theories of Bakhtin, Foucault and Derrida are examined as are the agendas of play reviewers from the national press. In the second section of the book, a wealth of guidance with practical exercises on the skills of writing for the stage is provided. Throughout the text, Wandor draws on her extensive experience as both playwright and teacher of creative writing to provide a guide that is both a scholarly and an immensely practical guide to writing for the theatre.
