TR 47. Transforming Texts: Constructive Processes in Reading and Writing

By Nancy Nelson Spivey

Summary: This paper focuses on the complex processes involved when writers compose from sources, processes in which writing influences reading and reading influences writing. Arguing that this "hybrid act of literacy" has been neglected in research, Spivey discusses ways writers organize, select, and connect content as they appropriate source materials and transform them in generating new texts. February, 1991; 24 pages.
