Elevating the Written Word through the Spoken: Dorothy Heathcote and a Group of 9- to 13-Year-Olds as Monks.
Wagner, Betty Jane
Theory into Practice, v24 n3 p166-72 Sum 1985
At a summer program designed to create a purpose for writing, 18 children moved from everyday language to diction appropriate to monks experiencing a significant moment in communal life. Scribes copied the children's words in a careful italic hand, providing pressure for even more precise diction and dignity of language. (MT)
