Abstract:

This report is the final report of a comparative study of the teaching and learning of writing in the United Kingdom and the United States, consisting of observational studies of 4 pairs of classrooms which exchanged writing between the 2 countries over a 2-year period. Following an overview in chapter 1, chapter 2 describes the study's methods. Chapters 3-6 contain case studies of the 4 pairs of classes engaged in the study, with each of these chapters devoted to one pair, and with each case pointing to contrasts in the teaching and learning of writing in the 2 countries. Chapter 7 provides the synthesis across cases and the overall conclusions. Seventy-eight references and 6 appendixes (containing a discussion of the examination system in the United Kingdom, protocols for interviews with teachers and students, examples of responses to writing, guidelines for response letters, a newspaper article, and a journal article) conclude the report. (Sr).
