Integrating Writing

Creating a distinction between writing, reading, and speaking is simply a way to organize these various sections. In practice, these categories are never separable. Nevertheless, this section offers guidelines for helping students actually put pen to paper in some low-pressure pre-writing exercises, for stepping students through the multiple steps of writing research essays, for coming up with different kinds of assignments that will encourage analytical writing (rather than just reporting), and for writing creative fictional and non-fictional narratives. Finally, this section offers some strategies for addressing plagiarism.
