The writing room : a resource book for teachers of English by Harvey S Wiener( Book )
6 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 676 libraries worldwide
Offered as a guide to teachers of basic writers (remedial or developmental students), this book contains activities for setting and achieving goals, for motivating reluctant beginning writers, and for practicing, stretching, and mastering basic writing skills. The six chapters of the book present ways of approaching rhetorical strategies and language skills that most inexperienced writers need to practice. The chapters deal with the following topics: (1) making and carrying out assignments; (2) the paragraph as rhetorical model; (3) word, sentence, and punctuation skills; (4) support services (audiovisual aids, writing centers, and student-teacher conferences); (5) what beginning teachers should know about testing (an overview of types of tests and ways of scoring the writing test); and (6) beyond the basics. Three appendixes contain suggested lesson plans, 16 informal writing exercises, and sample writing tasks. An annotated bibliography is also included, offering additional resources on topics such as understanding the basic writer, the writing process, the rhetorical content of basic writing courses, dealing with students' errors, and specific teaching techniques.

Total swimming : how the perfect exercise can offer rewards both to the body and to the inner self by Harvey S Wiener( Book )
7 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 423 libraries worldwide
Thousands of Americans are finding that swimming is a fabulous way to keep fit and reduce tension -- without the shin splints, calluses or leg aches many runners suffer. Indeed, swimming has been called the perfect exercise, recommended by the President's Council on Physical Fitness as an ideal way to achieve flexibility, endurance, strength, balance and weight control. Total Swimming goes beyond the physical aspects of the sport to show how anyone can use swimming to achieve an inner calm--a euphoria that integrates movement and thought and relieves tension almost like a mantra. This is the first book to develop a coherent program that weaves together the physical and psychological benefits of swimming into a complete plan for maximizing your total well-being. People who have practices the Total Swimming program say it is the part of their lives that makes all else run smoothly.-from dust jacket
