A Long Course in Teaching Writing
The author discusses the reasons why she uses the book "A Short Course in Writing" which is written by Kenneth Bruffee. One of the reasons why she chose the book as a guide in writing and teaching writing is that the book offers students several patterns of organization or structure. Another reason is the emphasis on arrangement and invention which involves making introductions and conclusions. The book also teaches that teachers can restrict the form or the content of student writing. Other reasons of the author's usage are that it helps her grade students fairly and it offers the Descriptive Outline method of writing.
