In Nuts ; Bolts, editor Thomas Newkirk details the evolution of the University of New Hampshire's writing program, drawing heavily from the oral culture -- or "lore" -- of the program. Then seven experienced practitioners contribute chapters dealing with the issues that beginning writing teachers often struggle with: How can I sequence a writing course? How can in-class writing exercises develop writing What is the place of reading in a writing course? What is my role in writing conferences? How can I help students self-evaluate? How do I teach editing? How should I grade? Nuts ; Bolts deals with these questions in a lucid, jargon-free, and specific way. While filled with examples of student work and classroom exercises, it is more than a sampler of things that "work." Each contributor is careful to show how classroom work comes out of careful thinking about course objectives; readers are invited to eavesdrop on this decision making process. An unabashedly practical book, Nuts ; Bolts
