Growing Up Writing

Arlene Silberman, Author, Elisabeth Scharlatt, Editor Crown Publishers $18.95 (286p) ISBN 978-0-8129-1823-6
The ``I hate to write'' syndrome that has afflicted generations of students will not remain to puzzle educators if the predictions of this encouraging report are fulfilled. Silberman, coauthor of Crisis in the Classroom , emphasizes and illustrates the connection between writing, thinking and learning that starts as early as the preschool years. As she celebrates solutions and innovative programs for children and teachers observed in the course of three years' research throughout the country, she is an impassioned advocate of the intertwining of thinking and writing. To preserve the easy articulateness of the young child is the goal of the programs Silberman discusses and praises for their excellence. Addressed to parents, teachers, students, this study is a source of encouragement for changes in teaching. (Sept.)
