BeschreibungDrawing on insights and evidence from the National Writing Project, this book explores the ways in which we can best support the development of children's writing in the early years. But before looking at effective ways to develop the writing curriculum, it explores some fundamental questions about learning and literacy.
It reflects, for example, on the varying uses and values of literacy in different communities and raises questions about the model of literacy presented in schools. It also discusses how children learn to write and demonstrates the wealth of knowledge about literacy that children bring to the classroom.
