TR 18. Readers as Writers Composing from Sources

By James R. King, Nancy Nelson Spivey

Summary: Extending research on writing processes as well as reading processes, this study examines the report-writing of sixth, eighth, and tenth graders, as accomplished and less accomplished readers work with source texts and compose their own new texts. Analyses reveal composing patterns connected not only to grade level but to reading ability as well. February, 1989; 30 pages.
