TR 09. Individual Differences in Beginning Composing: An Orchestral Vision of Learning to Write

By Anne Haas Dyson

Summary: Looking in depth at three first graders during classroom journal time, Dyson explores the interconnections of the children's speaking, writing, and drawing as indications of their developing acquisition of written language. Her analysis reveals the complexity of the writing acquisition process, as the three symbol systems interact in different ways for the different students. August, 1987; 28 pages.
