Apprendre a raconter? Comment lisons-nous les textes des auteurs eleves (Learning To Tell Stories? How Do We Read the Texts of Student Authors)?
Travaux Neuchatelois de Linguistique (Tranel), n29 p169-182 Dec 1998
The ways that adults have of reading and interpreting students' writing are examined, using for illustration six writing samples of one 13-year-old student. The student's instructions were to tell, in writing, an imaginary story, a true story, a personal history, a favorite dream, the most awful nightmare, and the worst memory. Different attitudes the adult brings to the task of reading student writing are discussed, including both structural issues and interpretations based on the genre, the student's approach, and the response elicited by the text. Implications for classroom teaching and for the teacher's relationship to the learner are considered. (MSE)
