Personal Growth in Social Context: A High School Senior's Search for Meaning in and through Writing.
Smagorinsky, Peter
Written Communication, v14 n1 p63-105 Jan 1997
Considers two competing accounts of how writers construct meaning, the designative tradition (which holds that speech artifacts mediate people's thinking) and the expressive tradition (which focuses on the transformation of inner speech to public speech). Show how one student's writing experiences reveal the interrelated roles of these two approaches to the construction of meaning. (TB)
