An Investigation of Secondary Student Writing Across the Curriculum and Some Suggestions for School Language Policies by Frank McTeague( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A survey of student writing in every subject and grade in a Canadian secondary school involved 117 students over a nine-day period and investigated the amount of writing done in all subjects and the variety of purpose and audience in student writing. Results showed that each student produced an average of two written pieces per day, that one out of three pieces was mathematical, that the average amount of writing was some 166 words per school day, that approximately one-third of the writing was copied, that the writing was limited in variety (only 15% of the writing called for the use of reasoning or inference), and that there was a discrepancy between the writing of students and writing required in the adult environment. Suggestions for teachers and department heads to use in implementing school language policies include the need to view writing as a multistage process, to recognize that literate intelligence and scholarly cognitive abilities are developed primarily by writing, and to understand that teacher response to student writing is critical in developing writing abilities.
