Haviland, Carol Peterson
Currently, fourth grade writing curricula in California public schools are dictated by California State English Language Arts standards, which are measured by the California Achievement Test. In this thesis, I explore the relationship between state standards and what compositionists identify as "meaningful" writing and learning.
