Reading Your Students. Their Writing & Their Selves. Teachers & Writers Think/Ink Book 3.
Based on the idea that a healthier, saner and more creative classroom is possible, this book presents an extended case study of the behavior of two fourth grade girls, focusing on their writing. The book argues that the data gathered from observing students can lead to changes in the classroom and improved teaching practices by providing teachers with an understanding of the diversity and individuality of their students, which would otherwise be overlooked or unknowable.
