Full Description

With the publication of The Journal Book in 1987, Toby Fulwiler revealed how journal writing can unleash the inquisitive and imaginative minds of English students. Now, as the writing-across-the-curriculum movement gains momentum, Susan Gardner and Toby Fulwiler extend the same high-quality guidance to teachers in technical and professional programs.

The Journal Book for Teachers in Technical and Professional Programs is the first collection of essays to focus on uses of journal writing outside the field of liberal arts, representing disciplines such as accounting, computer science, engineering, nursing, and teacher education. Readers will discover new strategies for building confident learners, including:

    traditional and electronic journals, letters, freewrites, focused freewrites, and electronic conferences
  • writing that is kept confidential, or shared only with teachers, or only with teammates, or with all class members
  • writing that generates a written response, or an oral response, or no formal response at all.
Readers will see how these teachers assign such writing, why they assign it, the problems they face, the adjustments they make, the successes they have. And they will see numerous examples of students writing and surprising themselves and their teachers.
