The bulk of my writing has been academic professional
books, articles and columns in educational journals, curriculum
guidelines, grant proposals, personal journals and so on.
In 1984, my interest in reading and young children's writing
naturally broadened to include writing instruction. That year,
I taught a new course on writing and learning to write for
teachers. It didn't take long to discover that to be an effective
teacher of writing I would have to experiment with a range
of genres myself.
I offer here, a sampler of my writing.
