Greek Teachers' Personal Theory on Writing at the Elementary Level: Opportunity for Innovation or Defense Mechanism?
Papoulia-Tzelepi, Panayiota; Spinthourakis, Julia A.
Mediterranean Journal of Educational Studies, v5 n1 p55-75 2000
Investigated Greek elementary teachers' personal theories on student writing. Surveys of teachers from urban and suburban schools indicated that teachers considered good writing a gift, not a teachable skill. They viewed the teachers' role as that of a judge, not a helper or collaborator, and students' writing as a product, not a process and as knowledge telling not knowledge transforming. (SM)
