TR 52. Planning Text Together: The Role of Critical Reflection in Student Collaboration

By Linda Flower, Lorraine Higgins, Joseph Petraglia

Summary: The authors argue that student collaboration does not necessarily foster critical reflection in writing tasks; use of reflection depends on students' assumptions about peer interaction and the task itself. Three forms of reflection were identified in college students' collaborative planning on a course paper: evaluating, considering alternatives, and justifying. While not all students engaged in reflective thinking, those who did were more likely to produce high-quality plans. September, 1991; 26 pages.
