Marashio, Nancy; And Others
A first-hand account of eighth grade students' experiences in learning to write, this monograph, written by students, provides teachers and students with a model for talking about the writing process. The comments in the monograph reflect the students' belief that people can learn to be good writers by writing frequently, sharing their writing and their criticisms with classmates, and discussing their writing process. Appendixes contain various teacher reactions to the writing program and a copy of one student's theme. (HOD)
