OP 07. The Problem-Solving Processes of Writers and Readers
By Betsey Bowen, Bertram C. Bruce, Linda Flower, Margaret Kantz, Ann M. Penrose, Ann S. Rosebery
Summary: The authors focus on writing and reading as forms of problem-solving that are shaped by communicative purpose. They examine the kinds of problems that arise as writers and readers attempt to communicate with one another--as writers and readers try to write to a specific audience, for example, or as readers try to interpret an author's meaning--and the strategies they draw upon to resolve those problems. January, 1989; 30 pages.
