I've just deleted a rather lengthy post on this topic with the expectation the depth and length would turn blog visitors off reading it properly and responding to the central issues explored.
So I'll put it to you as a simple notion instead...
Do you think texts written by students are potentially legitimate sources of reading skills outcomes for the other students in the class or -- by extension -- any other learners of the same age and/or level in a variety of other contexts?
In other words: is it possible or even desirable to use the texts our students write as actual reading texts for peers?
This is a question that has been brewing in me for almost a decade, and has come to a sort of head over the past six months in particular.
So what do you think?
