Students need writing policy
By JEAN O’CONNOR - 10/07/05
Last week, in an article written by Charles Johnson for all the Lee newspapers in the state, we learned about the Montana Office of Public Instruction’s discussion with the Board of Public Education regarding the proposed Writing Proficiency Policy. Crafted through years of working with writing assessment by the Office of Higher Education and teachers at all levels, the proposed board policy represents fair and appropriate standards that measure a student’s chance of success in college.

However, in that meeting OPI representatives requested written support for their position AGAINST the proposed policy that will ultimately be addressed by the Montana Board of Regents at their November 16 and 17 meeting.

This is the position of the Montana Association of Teachers of English Language Arts: should the Regents fail to approve this policy, it would represent a significant step backwards for all Montana teachers and students. From the contractor’s proposal and the clerical worker’s interview, to the demands of the academic world, writing is a measure of ability all must attain. Furthermore, research shows that employers at all levels expect their employees to express ideas in clear, logical, and proficient language.

Essays and Reports Made Easy with New Software Program
Essays and Reports Made Easy with New Software Program
Essays Made Easy with Software. Why use software to write? The question should be, Why NOT use software to write?

October 8, 2005 -- There are many smart people in the world that simply do not write well. They may have trouble organizing their thoughts or they may not understand the basic five paragraph format.

Essay writing software can help.

There was a recent review of an essay writing software program recently in the Writer's Digest online concerning a software called the Instant Essay Creator.

Some writers have trouble organizing their thoughts into essay format, while others are clueless as to how to write a conclusion. Middle school and high school students often struggle to master the art of writing the standard five-paragraph essays that English teachers love to assign. While there isn’t a writing software program on the planet that can magically transform dull and uninspired writing into an enticing inspirational essay, a quality specialized writing software program such as the Instant Essay Creator is definitely helpful for generating, organizing and developing random thoughts and ideas into a fine essay.

The Instant Essay Creator does not work magic, but it does work hard. What this program does best is guide its user step-by-step through the essay writing process using a template-based program which breaks the essay writing process down into manageable tasks. Using this easy to install program is a breeze, and Sayles, who just happens to be a writer and public school teacher, includes plenty of helpful pointers for assembling, organizing and polishing the standard five-paragraph essay.

The organizational aspects of this program are pragmatic and accessible and will help even the most scattered and disorganized of writers become more focused and productive. Students will benefit greatly from the instructional text, which helps writers develop the critical elements of an essay, such as thesis and point-of-view, while more seasoned writers are certain to appreciate the structured templates, which assist the writer in shaping scattered thoughts into focused and structured sentences and paragraphs.

We’re not talking brain surgery here. What the software basically does is break down the art of essay writing into small steps so that the writer doesn’t feel overwhelmed or get off track. The Instant Essay Creator is not a sophisticated or complex software program, and it doesn’t contain fancy graphics or elaborate illustrations, but it definitely makes the essay writing process less cumbersome and infinitely more accessible.

It won’t instantly churn out elegant prose by the barrelful, but it will guide struggling students through problem areas and it’s a great tool for practicing essay writing. The Instant Essay Creator is a useful tool for battling writer’s block and for increasing overall productivity because it’s a bit like having a writing coach by your side, guiding you along and helping you move forward in the right direction.

What’s the best part of all? It beats staring at a blank page waiting for inspiration to strike.

Hankering for those days of down-to-earth writers

Hankering for those days of down-to-earth writers

By GIOVANNI FAZIO


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bukowski: Born Into This

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rating: * * * * (out of 5)
Director: John Dullaghan
Running time: 113 minutes
Language: English
Opens Oct. 8
[See Japan Times movie listings]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Charles "Hank" Bukowski should need no introduction: novelist, poet-maudit, countercultural icon, the king of romantic nihilism, chronicler of working class despair and the joys of alcoholism, and the guy who put rough gutter talk -- the way people actually speak -- into the precious world of poetry.


Charles Bukowski and Linda Lee Bukowski in "Bukowski: Born Into This"

If you find yourself with no interest in Bukowski, then congratulations: your life must be well-adjusted, ideal and perfect enough to be featured in an American Express Gold Card commercial. Anyone who's rode the rail of despair, however, anyone who's felt disconnected, alone, stuck in a meaningless job, trying to scrape change out of a pocket for one last drink, or who's lost their cool at a lover, only to bitterly regret it as dawn approaches and your room feels so damn empty . . . well, surely you've had a spell immersed in the words of Bukowski.
