Writing: The State of the State vs. the State of the Art in English and American Schools.
Messenheimer, Trinka; Packwood, Angela
Reading: Literacy and Language, v36 n1 p11-15 Apr 2002
Looks at the impact government initiatives on classroom practices and the process of writing. Notes that the first year of the project has gathered and analyzed data from a longitudinal study of writing in Ohio, and a series of contrasting case studies in England. Finds that government mandates set up professional dilemmas that teachers had to resolve: teaching to the test, restricted teaching strategies, and integrity of texts. (SG)
