OP 26. High School English and the Teacher-Student Writing Conference: Fine-Tuned Duets in the Ensem
By Melanie Sperling
Summary: Sperling provides a glimpse into an urban ninth-grade English classroom and examines some of the teacher-student conferences that take place there. She shows that even if a secondary school teacher lacks time for lengthy one-to-one interactions, the teacher's brief conversations with individual students can play an important role in writing instruction. May, 1991; 10 pages.
