The Evaluation of a Lifewriting Project. Lifewriting in a Grade 8 English Class by Sydney Butler( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Developed for two grade 8 English classes in a large metropolitan high school in British Columbia (Canada), this paper presents the procedures for implementing and evaluating a 6-week unit on lifewriting, the composing of stories based on personal experience. The Lifewriting Curriculum is provided--six lessons including activities in which students first tell and then write a rough draft of a personal story. The paper explains that this writing is guided by five heuristics: a guided listing exercise, a 5-minute forced-writing, using the 5 W's, and developing a cognitive map. The final two lessons provided include peer response and student author exercises. The paper offers student and teacher interviews as assessment of the effectiveness of the program. In addition to students' and teachers' comments, two attitude surveys, administered as pre-and post-tests, are provided measuring student gains in writing confidence and social cohesion. The paper reveals that the results of the Writing Apprehension Test (WAT) indicated that while half the students remained at the same level, some students showed a dramatic dip of 20 to 30 points on the scale. The paper also concluded that the results of the Social Cohesion Test showed some movement in the desired direction but not enough difference to be statistically significant. Twelve references, A "Lesson 1" (75 minutes) Lesson Plan, and A Writing Apprehension Quiz are attached. (NH)
