Collaboration through writing and reading : exploring possibilities ( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 449 libraries worldwide
This book, a series of essays developed at a working conference on the integration of reading and writing, surveys the historical, cultural, situational and social forces that keep the teaching of writing separate, skew the curriculum to favor reading over writing, and discourage development of pedagogies that integrate the language arts; examines the cognitive processes and strategies writers and readers use outside of school to develop and express their ideas; and discusses the challenge teachers face--to help students develop skills for reading and writing without isolating those skills from meaningful tasks and letting students forget the reasons for these activities. The book contains the following chapters: Chapter 1, "On Collaboration" (Anne Haas Dyson); Chapter 2, Introduction (James Moffett) and "a Sisyphean Task: Historical Perspectives on Writing and Reading Instruction" (Geraldine Joncich Clifford); Chapter 3, Introduction (Guadalupe Valdes) and "Writing and Reading in the Community" (Robert Gundlach and others); Chapter 4, Introduction (Sandra Murphy) and "The Problem-Solving Processes of Writers and Readers" (Ann S. Rosebery and others); Chapter 5, Introduction (Wallace Chafe) and "Writing and Reading Working Together" (Robert J. Tierney and others); Chapter 6, Introduction (Mary K. Healy) and "Writing-and-Reading in the Classroom" (James Britton); and Chapter 7, "The Writing-Reading Connection: Taking Off the Handcuffs" (Art Peterson). (Ms)

Planning in writing : the cognition of a contructive process by Linda Flower( Book )
3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 90 libraries worldwide
Planning in writing is a strategic response to both the writing situation and the writer's own knowledge. This paper describes the process adult writers bring to ill-defined, expository tasks, such as writing essays, articles, reports and proposals. In planning, writers draw on (nest and integrate) three executive level strategies: knowledge-driven planning, script- or schema-driven planning, and constructive planning. research in both instructional and academic writing suggests that writers may fail to turn to a constructive strategy even when ill-defined tasks demand it. This paper presents a theory of constructive planning based on a detailed analysis of expert and novice writers. It isolates five critical features of this constructive strategy, in which writers must create a unique network of working goals and deal with the special problems of integration, conflict resolution and instantiation this constructive process entails. The paper describes the strategies writers use to meet these demands and some expert/novice differences that affect the integration of the entire plan. This theoretical framework also suggests some goals for instruction and the support of planning. Keywords: Cognition. (SDW)

Research in writing : past, present, and future by Sarah Warshauer Freedman( Book )
2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
To support arguments for an integrative approach to the study of writing, this report summarizes past and current trends in writing research and the resulting implications. The introduction discusses pre-1970s, 1970s, and 1980s research trends, noting that current research focuses on the context in which writing takes place and points out the benefits of building a social cognitive theory of writing. The first section, containing a review of relevant research, begins with a section on the uses of writing, stressing the notion of "communicative competence" as the individual's knowledge of appropriate uses of language in varied social contexts. This section also looks at the direction of current research, literacy communities, and the evaluation of written language. The second section of the literature review examines the nature of writing, and includes information on current research trends, possible new directions in research and their implications, writing processes and products, the role of technology, and individual differences in composing strategies. The third section of the report examines the acquisition of writing skills, with subsections on current research trends, the connection between writing and learning, the role of adults and peers, computer responses to writing, and new directions in research. The final section of the report suggests areas for future research. Twenty-one pages of references are included. (Jc)
