The Bread Loaf Writing Grants Program.
Middlebury Coll., VT. Bread Loaf School of English; Clemson Univ., SC. Dept. of English.
Illustrating that the Bread Loaf Grants Program is cost-effective and beneficial, this collection presents reports and articles by and about teachers and students involved in staff and curriculum development projects funded by the program. The collection concludes that the projects demonstrate that literacy flourishes in settings where children and young people have reasons to talk and write, and where teachers have the time and incentive to plan, think, and talk about language and learning. The first part of the collection presents 27 comments and reflections prepared by teachers and project directors: "Writing to Learn in the Elementary School" (N. Atwell); "A Teacher's Evolution: A Case Study from the South Carolina Rural Writing Network" (I. Coleman); "Coming of Age: The Cross-Age Tutoring Project" (E. Stuckey); "Cross Age Tutoring in Branchville" (M. Able); "The Cross-Age Tutoring Project" (D. Durante); "Cross-Age Tutoring for Special Learners" (S. Harrison); The 'Gems' Project" (L.

Griffith); "Writing Program for Sophomore English" (A. Harmon); "Breadnet: The Missing Link for Writers" (K. Holvig); "Discovering the Community" (D. Latham); "The Russian Adventure" (L.

Schwartz); "Networking: A New Ground in Kentucky Schools" (C. Stumbo); "BreadNet: Going Out to Come Back" (R. Williams); "Developing BreadNet for the Schools" (L. Wollin); and "Going beyond the Basal" (A. Young). The second part of the collection presents articles and features about projects published in Bread Loaf News and elsewhere.
