The Talk/Write Manual Part 2: Essay Development and Evaluation

Traditional approaches to essay writing usually involve teaching paragraph structure and, once learned, expanding the paragraph into an essay. Talk/Write takes a different approach on multiple levels: Students are taught how and why to tap conversational skills and prior experience when writing. To increase retention of ideas and ease the writing process, students are also taught use of a preliminary (and reduced) map, a graphic organizer, in Part 1 that is further developed in Part 2.

The general organization of the Talk/Write program follows the principles of ‘schema’ (cognitively connected concepts) development: Similar to a spider’s building of a web, the basic strands of the web are created (structure) in Part 1, and is further developed and expanded in detail in Part 2.

Part 2’s sequence of activities is shown below:
