Students' Understandings of Metaphors in Teachers' Talk about Writing.
McCarthey, Sarah J.
Language Arts, v71 n8 p598-605 Dec 1994
Uses observations of three students' and two teachers' use of metaphors in process writing instruction to shed light on the role of talk in writing development. Finds that metaphors can be complex, interesting, and thought-provoking; and all students developed a shared understanding with teachers despite differences in background. (SR)
