Listening to the Experts in My First-Grade Classroom.
Brown, Cheryl W.
Teaching and Change, v3 n2 p115-29 Win 1996
This teacher examined the effect of allowing her first graders to choose their own topics for writing. She gathered and analyzed evidence from observations, discussions, surveys, and Likert-like scales, then changed the way she facilitated and taught writing. Students wrote from their imaginations and experiences and became more original, genuine, and risk-taking authors. (SM)
