A Thousand Writers Writing: Seeking Change through the Radical Practice of Writing as a Way of Being
Yagelski, Robert P.
English Education, v42 n1 p6-28 Oct 2009
In this frankly utopian essay, Robert Yagelski's theme is the transformative power of writing as an act in and of itself. He makes us reevaluate our motivation and point for teaching writing in schools and asks us to consider an agenda that will quite frankly scare teachers as he explains why we need an ontology of writing.
