Teacher-Student Writing Conferences

Annotated Research

Question: Is there equal give-and-take in teacher-student writing conferences?

Answer: “Two-way communication occurred only about 40% of the time, as teachers often mistakenly adopted the position of experts over all knowledge domains, cutting off an exchange of information.” DJ McLaughlin. 1988. P. 209.

Comment: I think 40% is higher than I expected. RayS.

Title: “Annotated Bibliography of Research in the Teaching of English.” Ed. JD Marshall and RK Durst. Research in the Teaching of English (May 1989), 208-222.
