Young people’s writing in senior English classrooms: Opening the classroom door
thesisposted on 13.02.2018 by LOUISE ANNE PIVA
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
The thesis is a practitioner inquiry that examines the teaching of writing to Year 12 students in the subject of English. It uses narrative inquiry to examine the teaching and learning of writing over the course of one academic year. It focuses on the dialogue between the teacher, her students and others as well as the contextual and socio-cultural factors that influence and mediate the teaching and learning of writing.
