Brockmeier, Jens – Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, 2020
Writing and narrative are commonly taken to be two separate fields of research and scholarly reflection. In this paper, I offer some thoughts on how they are related, using David Olson's work on literacy and the development of metalinguistic awareness as a frame of reasoning. As Olson has shown, language is not only a form and practice of…

Woodhouse, Howard – Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, 2020
In this article I consider David Olson's account of how literacy produces a new kind of consciousness, one in which a process of metacognition makes possible both knowledge and an understanding of language itself. This, he argues, enables readers and writers to reflect upon language, understand what constitutes reasoning, and recognize any logical…

Richmond, Sheldon – Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, 2020
This paper involves an experiment in how to engage in an informal and open-ended discussion, in a normally expository context, that is customarily guided by the norms for scholarly exposition. In attempting this experiment, I avoid using the scholarly apparatus of footnotes, endnotes, and references. I leave it open to those interested to use…

Luke, Carmen; And Others – Curriculum Inquiry, 1983
Contrary to David Olson's claim that authority is conveyed by textbook language, it is mainly the school context of textbooks that establishes their authority--and that of teachers--in students' minds. The curriculum is not in the text but in the social rules reflected by school organization and teachers' authority. (JW)

Minter, Deborah Williams; And Others – College English, 1995
Describes a service learning course for which students participated in a seminar on literacy and an after-school tutoring program for children. Shows how undergraduate representations of literacy share common features with conversations among well-known writers (such as Walter Ong and David Olson) and also implicitly critique them. (TB)

Olson, David R.; Oatley, Keith – Written Communication, 2014
Learning to read and write is seen as both the acquisition of skills useful in a modern society and an introduction to a world increasingly organized around the reading and writing of authoritative texts. While most agree on the importance of writing, insufficient attention has been given to the more basic question of just what writing is, that…

Olson, David R. – Educational Psychology Review, 2012
As a summary of current advances in developmental psychology, the above article makes some useful contributions. As a contribution to educational policy and practice, it is limited if not a failure for two reasons. It fails to come to grips with the real demands of living classrooms, and second, it fails to grasp the actual subjective lives of the…

Davidson, Phebe – 1993
Composition teachers today are aware of the practice of differentiating between written and spoken language. The "basic writing" student often views written language as a nearly new language altogether. Therefore, it is increasingly important to recognize and codify not merely the disparity between speech and writing but also the…
