A Study of Children's Rewriting. Final Report for NCTE Research Foundation Project No. 80:11, September 1980-October 1982.
Calkins, Lucy McCormick
The materials in this report deal with the process of children's writing and rewriting. The first section of the report describes the original methodology of a study of children's rewriting and explains how and why that methodology was changed as the study progressed. The second section provides a review of related literature, while the third, fourth, and fifth sections reproduce articles on the subject written by two different teacher/researchers: "Reading and Writing Process: A Reciprocal Agreement," by M. A. Boutwell; "Research Update: Questions for Teachers Who Wonder if Their Writers Change," by D. H. Graves and M. E. Giacobbe; and "A Writer Reads, A Reader Writes," by M. E. Giacobbe. Comprising the bulk of the report, the sixth section provides a detailed account of a case study of one child as she wrote and revised in the classroom, and the seventh section discusses the rationale for choosing the methodology used in the case study.
