Elementary School Writing

Annotated Research

 Question: What types of writing occur in elementary school classrooms?

 Answer: “Found that writing in elementary classrooms concentrates on imaginative writing and responses to literature with relatively little exposition.” P. Perrin. 19984. 407.

Comment; The same was true of reading at that time, i.e., mostly narratives with little reading of expository materials. Has the situation changed (2011)? RayS.
