FictionOnline Resources Short Story Competition - Winners' Stories In the summer newsletter we ran a competition looking for stories of no more than words that could be used as model texts for Talk for Writing. We received a number of entries, four of which stood out as prize winners.
Bringing Simplicity to Multiplicity 14 An Empirical comparison of some measures of postformal behavior 15 Attaining Postformal Stage Performance 16 Implications 17 Acknowledgment 20 Four Postformal Stages The term "postformal" has come to refer to various stage characterizations of behavior that are more complex than those behaviors found in Piaget's last stage--formal operations-and generally seen only in adults.
Commons and Richards a, b and Fischeramong others, posited that such behaviors follow a single sequence, no matter the domain of the task e.
Most postformal research was originally directed towards an understanding of development in one domain. The common approach to much of the work on postformal stages has been to specify a performance on tasks that develop out of those described by Piagetas formal-operational or out of tasks in related domains e.
The assumption has been made that the predecessor task performances formal operationsare in some way necessary to the development of their successor performances and proclivities postformal operations. In any case, the collection of theories form part of the field that is known as Positive Adult Development Commons,Sinnott,personal communication.
This field examines ways in which development continues in a positive direction during adulthood.
This chapter will first review evidence supporting the general idea that postformal operations exist. Specific proposals for how postformal thinking might differ from formal thinking are then briefly reviewed. The history of postformal research and writing indicates convergence between different theories in the types of reasoning described.
We will argue that the Model of Hierarchical Complexity provides a framework within which the diversity of other theories can be placed, and illustrate a possible consensus view as to what the postformal stages might look like.
Model of Formal Operations Piagetused propositional logic as a model of formal operations. Here, he followed a direction developed earlier by Frege and Peanowho attempted to generalize propositional logic in order to represent other forms of reasoning, most notably arithmetic.
Because propositional logic was developed to reason about other forms of reasoning, it can be used to reason about the logics of classes and relations.
It can represent logical statements about both relations e. However, in this form, propositions can be treated as objects in themselves, rather than as the direct reflection of some concrete reality.
Hence, propositions have formal properties that are different from the properties of objects and the actions that organize propositions are different from the actions that organize concrete reality. Propositions are also statements to which the truth values true T or false F can be assigned.
Or the propositions may be built out of variables other than truth vales. The actions that organize propositions work under the basic constriction of this bivalent system of truth values.
For example, the truth values impose a restriction on the operation of negation: To negate a proposition is to change its truth value.
Piaget ties the logic of propositions to the Boole's system of combination, a system in which nuclear propositions are combined into larger molecular propositions using the of connectives: All these connectives are operations.Jul 04, · We use talk for writing across the school I work in Year 1 but went down to Reception to do some storytelling as part of the transition process.

The origins and scope of our proposals. 1 In April the Secretaries of State for Education and Science and for Wales appointed a Working Group to advise them on appropriate attainment targets and programmes of study for English. Talk for writing approaches were initially introduced through a series of workshops, which the National where examples of ‘book-talk’ in the classroom can also be found.
Examples of CPD sessions to develop ‘book-talk’ can be found on DVD 2.

Pie Corbett: Teaching writing - washing lines. Identify the sequence: opening – something happens – events to sort it out – ending; identify temporal connectives and talk about how they are used to signal the passing of time; make deductions about why events take place in a particular order by looking at characters’ actions and their consequences.
