Five Types of Writing ~ Collins Writing Program

Five Types of Writing ~ Collins Writing Program | Garry Rogers Nature Conservation News | Scoop.it

The Collins Writing Program distinguishes itself from others through its proprietary approach to student practice. It shows teachers how to guide their students through all five types of writing with practical, easy-to-use strategies and techniques that have shown to improve student writing.

The program especially emphasizes Type Four writing, where peer editing takes place. Type Four assignments provide students with opportunities to draft, edit, and receive meaningful feedback on their work−within manageable time limits.

Candy Copeland's curator insight, October 28, 2013 3:24 PM

I've said it before, hunting should not be allowed in any area deemed a "Refuge".  A refuge is a place of safty for animals.  If they are going to permit hunting, change it's name to hunting area .  We act like we're a great conservative Country and have saved all these wild places.  IT'S NOT GREAT TO CALL IT A REFUGER AND ALLOW HUNTING OF WILDLIFE THERE!  It's a great farse!
