Hudson, Nancy A.
English Journal, v84 n5 p65-69 Sep 1995
Explores how journal writing in a free form--without consideration of grammar, punctuation, or other mechanics and without the guidance of an assigned topic--may lead to trusting relationships with teachers and students' increased understanding of their own needs and motives. Suggests that behavior of troubled students improves as a result of this kind of writing activity. (TB)
