"What New Things These Words Can Do For You": A Focus on One Writing-Project Teacher and Writing Instruction.
Frank, Carolyn R.
Journal of Literacy Research, v33 n3 p467-506 Sep 2001
Explores a writing-project teacher's premises about writing and illustrates how those underlying principles drove her instruction, influenced children's work, and created a particular theory of writing in her classroom culture. Finds that writing conferences are important instructional conversations for teaching writing; learning to write involves the influence of children's social lives; and writing teachers benefit from being writers themselves.
