Voices in the Junior High School Classroom: Lost and Found.
Hamblin, Lynda
English Journal, v90 n1 p80-87 Sep 2000
Discusses aspects of the classroom environment that nurture young writers. Describes strategies and assignments (including cross-curricular poetry, a letter writing activity, multigenre papers, a tribute assignment, and a "read and retail" assignment) which helps students understand and develop voice. Notes that while students' writing improved, their scores on Idaho's Direct Writing Assessment did not, since it actually negates students' voices. (SR)
