"Real" Writing in the Elementary Classroom.
Dyson, Anne Haas; Jensen, Julie M.
Momentum, v12 n4 p11-13 Dec 1981
The authors assert that school writing programs inhibit students through meaningless topic assignments and emphasis on the technical aspects of transcription rather than the really basic skill of composing. They describe a first-grade classroom ideal for writing instruction, where the teacher collaborates in children's writing, instead of teaching it. (SJL)
