"Viva la Revolucion:" Transforming Teaching and Assessing Student Writing through Collaborative Inquiry
Fanning, Molly; Schmidt, Brigid
English Journal, v97 n2 p29-35 Nov 2007
Considering how to better assess student writing, middle school teachers Molly Fanning and Brigid Schmidt revolutionize their conception of themselves as teachers. They challenge all educators to become what Henry A. Giroux calls "transformative intellectuals" by identifying as writers, practicing collaborative inquiry, and sharing their work with peer audiences. (Contains 2 figures.)
