Abstract

The primary concern of this project was the extent
to which teachers of grade seven, eight and nine English in
Southern Tasmanian secondary schools, during 1984,
consciously sought to develop their students' ability to
write and think, through having them write across a range
of forms with their concomitant purposes and thinking
process, and through using models of these writing kinds
from literature.
The study considers not only the intention of
teachers in this, but also the potential of the writing
tasks offered to students for developing their repertoire
of writing kinds and of the potential of the literature
resources for modelling such a repertoire.
Further approaches and foci for investigation
emanate from this exploratory study and recommendations are
made which, it is hoped, will redirect teachers to attend
increasingly both to the range of writing forms they offer
students for composition, and to the appropriateness of the
literature they select for modelling the writing kinds that
they wish students to compose.
