Feeding the Emaciated Muse: Lessons from a First Year Teacher.
Cheney, Matthew; Gaillet, Lynee Lewis
English Journal, v89 n4 p26-30 Mar 2000
Describes the author's first year as a secondary school English teacher. Notes how his writing-centered curriculum was a failure because he did not realize that writing and reading cannot be separated. Outlines how his teaching and class activities now reflect the fact that learning to write better helps student learn to read better and that better readers become better writers. (SR)
