One-to-one conferences are at the heart of the process approach to teaching writing. While they appear to be warm, informal conversations, conferences are in fact highly principled teaching interactions, carefully designed to move writers along learning pathways. Building on the transcripts of 61 live-from-the-classroom conferences (with Lucy's coaching commentary)Conferring with Primary Writers CD-ROM models effective conferring practices and creates a forum to reflect on this crucial strategy in the teaching of primary writers.
