WRITING FOR 100 DAYS
A Student-Centered Approach to Composition and Creative Writing
By Gabriel Arquilevich. Based on the premise that the best teacher of writing is writing itself, this practical book provides enough composition, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry activities to fill at least 100 days. The flexible activities can be used by teachers as a complete course, or by students who work independently, sharing and reacting to each other’s work. Among the activities: students correct sentences like “After brushing her teeth for the first time, my mom gave my baby sister a kiss”; devise a story filled with cliches, then trade it with a partner and replace the cliches with original expressions; compose a sestina; and write a letter to themselves and receive it in a year. Grades 7–12. 8½” x 11″. Fairview. 103 pages. ©1995.
