Abstract: The purpose of this research was to explore writing as a way of knowing. This was specifically addressed through an indepth focus on an individual high school student's emerging voice and his perceptions of the ways in which classroom composition experiences nurtured his voice development. Through interviews, reflective journals, autobiographical writing, the student's compositions, and classroom observations, data were gathered over a two year period from the student and three of his teachers concerning their perceptions of voice development within the composition classroom setting.
