National Center for the Study of Writing and Literacy Occasional Paper    

OP 13. Must Teachers Also Be Writers?

By Vivian Gussin Paley

Summary: In this paper, Paley provides examples of her classroom experiences with kindergartners, showing how keeping a daily journal helps her to understand her students, their learning, and her own teaching. Says Paley: "Only as we write down our thoughts and observations may we question and argue with ourselves about the things we do and say." September, 1989; 17 pages.
