Promoting the Lifelong Love of Writing.
Sanacore, Joseph
Nurturing children's passionate interest in writing increases the chances that they will incorporate writing into their lifestyles. Educators can help children in their journey toward success by creating a positive professional attitude about writing in school, allowing substantial time for writing, providing opportunities to become immersed in a variety of discourse, guiding efforts to "go public" with their writing, organizing an effective visiting authors' program, and encouraging family-school connections. These approaches represent only a sampling of the ways in which schools can empower children to love writing and to use it successfully throughout their lives. Contains 29 references. An "ambitious" model of a student's yearlong schedule that includes writing immersion is attached. (RS)
