Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The myth "children are not able to write unless they can read" has been generally accepted. Yet, the studies of Calkins (1983) and Graves (1983) conclude that ninety percent of all children come to school believing they can write. They have some concept of writing and can write from the first day of school. This ability to write is no accident, for children have been copying the writers in their home environment.
