Writing in Ed and Human Dev
University of Alaska Fairbanks, Fairbanks, AK
First of all, the "LAWS R' US" mnemonic looks like something useful across disciplines (List ideas, arrange ideas, write draft, sleep, reread, undo weakness and spell check).
The bulk of this article, in fact, could be applied to any instance or subject in which writing is required. I think one of the primary differences is the informal bias toward writing exhibited in the Education field; for example, as noted in this paper, reflective papers (and others pertaining to experience and emotion) dominate research papers in the undergraduate education curriculum. Whether or not I agree with this bias, I recognize the importance of writing skills in informal circumstances - and now I have a few more tools to do so.
Writing in The Disciplines: Education
Sierra College, Grass Valley, California
Good reminder to not discard the good writing foundations that had been carefully laid with earlier education. When writing as a student in the Education Department, where writing assignments turn from assignments that rely heavily on research, to assignments that rely more on self -reflection and reaction, good writing practices still apply, even though this form of writing seems less formal. I am intrigued by the idea that better understanding of the term Pedagogy improves student writing in the area of education. I am looking forward to understanding this better as I continue further in my own educational path.
