Doing Number 5: From Process to Cultural Texts in an Urban Writing Classroom.
Blake, Brett Elizabeth
Language Arts, v72 n6 p396-404 Oct 1995
States the importance of content in the process writing classroom. Demonstrates with "cultural texts" (texts about the daily realities of the students on topics of domesticity and family, violence, evolving sexuality, and future aspirations) that not only how children write, but also what they write about, is of critical importance in helping them become capable and willing writers.
