Making Student Writing Matter
McKenney, Yekaterina
Educational Leadership, v75 n7 p33-37 Apr 2018
Yekaterina McKenney offers a plea to writing teachers: Don't emphasize the conventions of writing, the regurgitation of facts, and correct spelling and grammar over the generation of ideas and the creativity of storytelling. She offers up fresh ideas and suggestions about how to make writing meaningful and personal for student writers--from personalizing the subjects they write about to asking them to explore their journey in understanding a short story or essay they've read.
