Summary

A landmark text on the teaching of writing, Donald M. Murray's A Writer Teaches Writing has had a profound influence on composition theory and practice.

Benefits:

  • As a pioneer in the field, Murray's authoritative, yet engaging voice creates a practical pedegogy for process theories of writing.
  • New. A new preface outlines Murray's career and explains how he developed the process approach to writing as well as how he came to write A Writer Teaches Writing.
  • Two chapters, Chapter 5 Inviting Writing: Assignments and Demonstrations and Chapter 6 Inviting Writing: Activities and Environments, provide ideas to help teachers create assignments that will illicit real and original responses from their students.
  • Chapter 7, Responding to Surprise, helps teachers be comfortable with not knowing or planning every part of the course. This chapter helps teachers both allow and take advantage of surprise in order to create a shared knowldege experience as opposed to working from a rigid plan that doesn't utilize the student's creativity and potential.
  • Chapter 9, Workshop Teaching: the Group Response gives sound advice on how to effectively negotiate students working in groups.
