Edgar Allan Poe's The Gold-Bug Lesson Plan using Freewriting
« on: October 29, 2011, 02:10:38 PM »
I have attached a slideshow that offers a rough outline of a lesson employing freewriting. The slideshow also explains the theory behind freewrites and presents a variety of ways freewriting may be used. Also, there is a reference list of useful materials for invention techniques. I have also attached a separate document from LuAnn at the Intensive English Institute. This document is an example of how she used "quickwrites" to develop a thesis statement in an advanced reading and writing course. This shows how a "quickwrite" can be adapted to peer feedback in a web based course. This also provides a good example of how both a "quickwrite" and peer feedback may be used during the early phases of writing prior to a draft 1 to generate more meaningful feedback later on as well as acquanting students with their peers work prior to draft feedback. The Gold-Bug is from "Tales of Mystery and Imagination" by Edgar Allan Poe, Simplified Edition from Longman Fiction (ISBN 0582274982).
