MetadataShow full item record
“This research aimed to provide an understanding of the writing processes of an informational text by four young writers in a private bilingual school in Central Mexico. This study focuses on these young learners’ authorial writing. The methodology used was an exploratory teacher research. These four young writers were set to inquire about the effects of social pressure on physical and emotional health. One of the products of this inquiry was composing two feature articles. This research explored literacy practices in four students’ literacy events (four ways to compose those feature articles) through the analysis of the elements of these events (artifacts) as described by Barton, Hamilton, and Ivanič (2000). The three kinds of artifacts used to explore the four literacy events were i) the young learners’ work on their writer’s notebook, ii) six conferences (semi structured interviews), and iii) the publishing of one of their two feature articles. These artifacts were analyzed adapting the Fountas and Pinnell’s (2017) writing continuum. This study describes how these young writers used their agency as writers to plan, draft, revise and publish two feature articles in the span of six weeks.”
