Ways of Knowing: Implications of Writing Curriculum in an Early Childhood Classroom
Furman, Cara Elizabeth
Curriculum Inquiry, v47 n3 p246-262 2017
Early childhood writing curriculums typically focus on skills and encouraging interest. What children are asked to write is rarely closely examined. Through a self-study of my first and second grade classroom, in this paper I look at the implications of genre when teaching young children. I first identify some of the problems of a popular personal narrative curriculum and then showcase the ways that fiction can be more empowering for my students.
