This summer the ISI at PAWLP is hoping to introduce our newest TCs to some writing heroes. At the Spring Meeting, over a dinner, a few of us discussed who we hold as our hero, those brave men and women who blazed the trail, did the initial research, andhelped create writing instruction as we know it today. Of course, Donald Graves and Donald Murray were immediately mentioned. Who are your writing heroes? What books do you hold on to and return to because they are timeless?
