Is That Writing--Or Are Those Marks Just a Figment of Your Curriculum?
Edelsky, Carole; Smith, Karen
Language Arts, v61 n1 p24-32 Jan 1984
Discusses the differences between inauthentic and authentic writing, arguing that most writing in school is inauthentic, because it is written for someone else's intentions. Examples are cited from a classroom with an essentially whole language orientation, but which occasionally reverts to inauthentic writing assignments. (HTH)
