From the Pens of Babes: Authentic Audiences for Talented, Young Writers
Spanke, Jeff; Paul, Kristina Ayers
Gifted Child Today, v38 n3 p177-186 Jul 2015
In this article, we--a former high school language arts instructor and former K-3 gifted resource teacher--reflect on critical experiences with students that, although unique in scope, are bound together through a common concern: How can teachers provide meaningful writing experiences for talented young writers? We advocate for the use of high-end learning theory in developing the talent of young writers, especially as related to the provision of authentic, real-world writing experiences.
