Lifewriting in a Secondary School.
Butler, Sydney J.; Mansfield, Earl A.
English Quarterly, v28 n1 p12-17 Fall 1995
Reports on a study of eighth graders who were given a series of lessons in which they were asked to write narratives about themselves. Suggests that "lifewriting" helped students, especially English-as-a-Second-Language students, to understand themselves and their pasts better and helped them to become more engaged by the possibilities of writing.
