When Children Have Something to Say, Writers Are Born
Stonier, Francis W.
Young Children, v64 n1 p32-36 Jan 2009
Stonier, a second grade inclusion teacher, wanted to instill a love of writing in all 25 of the children in his class while offering a challenging curriculum for everyone. He made the children's writing meaningful by setting up a writing exchange with high school students. The project, beginning with the second-graders offering critiques of the older students' illustrated children's books, took on a life of its own, with newfound enthusiasm for writing in both age groups. ["When Children Have Something to Say, Writers Are Born" was written with Daniel L. Dickerson.]
