Time for Writing in the Elementary School.
Intended to help elementary school language arts teachers provide students with opportunities for unprescribed writing according to a natural writing process, this booklet discusses research and practice in the writing process and creating a supportive classroom environment. The first part of the booklet examines theory and research on the stages and fluctuations of the writing process, the use of memory in invention, the rewriting process, and writing interests and attitudes. The second half of the booklet explores ideas and suggestions for discovering when extra writing time is needed and by which students, and ideas for incorporating more off-stage thinking time into the language arts curriculum.
