OP 37. What's Involved?: Setting up a Writing Exchange

By Sarah Warshauer Freedman

Summary: This paper describes a writing exchange pairing classes in the San Francisco Bay Area, grades six through nine, with classes in inner-city London. Through these writing exchanges pairs of teachers on both sides of the Atlantic worked to get students seriously involved in using written language, especially students with long histories of school failure. Freedman shows how writing substantial pieces for a distant but real whole-class audience helped students to care about their writing and make significant strides as writers. June, 1994; 26 pages.
