National Center for the Study of Writing and Literacy Occasional Paper    

OP 03. Drawing, Talking and Writing: Rethinking Writing Development

By Anne Haas Dyson

Summary: Based on Dyson's studies of primary grade children engaged in journal writing, this paper discusses how children move among and negotiate multiple worlds: the text world they create on paper; the social world that they share with their peers; and the wider experienced world of people, places, events and things. Children's texts thus become increasingly embedded in their lives.February, 1988; 26 pages.
