Descripción del producto
A wise and witty analysis of the process of self-confrontation and growth through writing. (Harvard Educational Review)
Reseña del editor
In Writing Without Teachers, well-known advocate of innovative teaching methods Peter Elbow outlines a practical program for learning how to write. His approach is especially helpful to people who get "stuck" or blocked in their writing, and is equally useful for writing fiction, poetry, and essays, as well as reports, lectures, and memos.
The core of Elbow's thinking is a challenge against traditional writing methods. Instead of editing and outlining material in the initial steps of the writing process, Elbow celebrates non-stop or free uncensored writing, without editorial checkpoints first, followed much later by the editorial process. This approach turns the focus towards encouraging ways of developing confidence and inspiration through free writing, multiple drafts, diaries, and notes. Elbow guides the reader through his metaphor of writing as "cooking:" his term for heating up the creative process where the subconscious bubbles up to the surface and the writing gets good.
1998 marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of Writing Without Teachers. In this edition, Elbow reexamines his program and the subsequent influence his techniques have had on writers, students, and teachers. This invaluable guide will benefit anyone, whether in the classroom, boardroom, or living room, who has ever had trouble writing.

The former head of the English Department at the University of Hawaii Lab School followed Elbow's core recommendations beginning over 20 years ago. Since then, students there do "journal free writing" for 5-minutes every session of English class. Teachers do not "correct" this writing, a process that would be overwhelmingly time consuming, but students exchange their journals with another student each week so that the students know their writing will be read by another. This contributes to the result that since this has been adopted, along with one other revolutionary teaching method, no student has graduated who was not reading at least at the 12th grade level. It is estimated that the average student from 6th to 12th grade will have written approximately the same number of words as are in Moby Dick.
This 5-minute-a-day of writing has also been adopted in an after-school STEM reading program, also with great results (See: ReaDch.com).
Without such feedback you will not be able to understand what the reader is thinking as he reads your work. Elbow is not describing how to get "feedback" but how to understand the effect your writing has on the reader. In these meetings each individual describes what was going on in his head, what he remembers... not whether he liked your work. Thus, you see the effect.
All three of my Peter Elbow's books have been extremely helpful. My only complaint is that his writing is too wordy. However, his wordiness is pleasant to endure. This book is easily worth a 5 out of 5.
