7 1/2 Ways to Kill a Young Writer.
Hall, Susan E. M.
Journal of Teaching Writing, v4 n2 p178-82 Fall 1985
Examines teacher attitudes that inhibit experimentation and stifle the development of beginning writers. Illustrates the drawbacks of insisting on (1) using only one approach to learning to write, (2) keeping a quiet classroom, (3) fitting letters between the lines of ruled paper, (4) using primary pencils for all writing activities, and (5) drawing each letter from top to bottom.
