Do children have agency as authors?

Cremin, Teresa (2018). Do children have agency as authors? Teachers As Writers, Arvon Foundation.



Over the last three months the Craft of Writing team, (Debra Myhill and I, Becky Swain, Becky Coles and Sara Venner) have been recruiting schools to this new project. Funded by EEF and the RSA, it’s a partnership study between the OU, the University of Exeter and Arvon and a rare opportunity for deep, sustained CPD in the teaching of writing. The project, which involves teacher residentials at Lumb Bank (Ted Hughes’ old home) and CPD days, focuses both on writing standards and children’s motivation and engagement as creative and effective writers.
