Teacher to Teacher
Have you ever been unable to get a student interested in learning to write? Or have you ever wondered about some non-threatening ways to begin a writing program with your adult literacy students? I face these problems often with my students at Goodwill Industries of the Miami Valley, Inc., and I have found that using a writing journal with the majority of them is an effective way to introduce them to writing while still working with their reading, self-esteem, and confidence levels. Throughout this article I will discuss three types of journals as well as different assignments that some colleagues and I have used with our adult learners.
