Excerpt from Show

Bronwyn LaMay on the origins of her research:

There was a phenomenon that I had started trying to explore in the classroom around student self-narrative, emotional blocks I felt kids were hitting in the classroom, and also the role of writing in helping them find ways of writing themselves in the classroom, that I was really trying to put into words."
