Must Teachers Also Be Writers? Occasional Paper No. 13.
Paley, Vivian Gussin
The classroom setting is a source for daily and creative writing material for teachers as well as students. Teacher and student writing samples help to illustrate classrooms as cultures-in-the-making in which new rules are invented every day and suggest that stories of classroom life must of necessity end in question marks and untied threads. Several 5-year-old students demonstrate the way they think as they continue to develop new roles and rationales. The teachers' own thinking and studying take place as they observe themselves and the children moving in and out of untenable positions. This forms the bulk of the daily writing. (KEH)
