Authors of their own free will
Their journals were sometimes written collaboratively, sometimes privately.
They could abandon unprofitable themes or explore areas in which they had special interest or expertise. Some pupils added illustrations to complement their writing or became involved in editing and revising. The results are vivid and encouraging. Children's Writing Journals is available from the United Kingdom Language Association (members pound;6; non-members pound;7.50) .Tel: 01763 241188 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
