Adventures in Fantasy: Lessons and Activities in Narrative and Descriptive Writing, Grades 5-9

John Gust Adventures in Fantasy: Lessons and Activities in Narrative and Descriptive Writing, Grades 5-9
Jossey-Bass | 2007 | ISBN: 0787992909 | 272 pages | PDF | 5,1 MB

Adventures in Fantasy offers an exciting approach to teaching narrative and descriptive writing that stimulates a student’s creativity and imagination. Filled with mini-lessons, reading projects, and hands-on writing activities, the book shows teachers step-by-step how to introduce students to the “magic” of creating a complete story in the fantasy/adventure genre.
Before fleshing out their stories, however, students are asked to construct actual maps of their ‘fantasyland’ – and then to write a travelogue describing the setting in vivid detail. This initial fantasizing encourages students to be wildly inventive in creating the drama, ogres, villains, heroes and heroines featured in their story, and on the way they learn about the mythic journey.

English | Aug 1, 2001 | ISBN: 9004123083 | 286 Pages | PDF | 11 MB

The oldest written stage of the Japanese language forms the subject of John Bentley's important volume. The underlying texts (also presented here) are those of the religious liturgies (norito) and imperial edicts (A.D. 685). Part one deals with the liturgies, the writing system, texts, and phonology and the dating problem.

Lazy Virtues: Teaching Writing in the Age of Wikipedia

Lazy Virtues: Teaching Writing in the Age of Wikipedia by Robert E. Cummings
English | Mar. 27, 2009 | ISBN: 0826516165 | 209 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Winner of the MLA's Mina P. Shaugnessy Prize for an outstanding work in the fields of language, culture, literacy, or literature with strong application to the teaching of English.
Focusing largely on the controversial website Wikipedia, the author explores the challenges confronting teachers of college writing in the increasingly electronic and networked writing environments their students use every day. Rather than praising or condemning that site for its role as an encyclopedia, Cummings instead sees it as a site for online collaboration between writers and a way to garner audience for student writing.
