From Talking to Writing.
Medway, Peter; And Others
This is one in a series of eight discussion pamphlets produced by the Writing Across the Curriculum Project dealing with some of the issues connected with writing in the schools and their relation to learning. This pamphlet explores differences between students' talk and their writing in school contexts. It notes the value of expressive language--and talk--in dealing with new ideas and examines some of the things that can be done well in writing and not necessarily done at all in speech. (FL)
