OP 20. On Teaching Writing: A Review of the Literature

By Anne Haas Dyson, Sarah Warshauer Freedman

Summary: The teaching of writing is a complex act, both because of the complex nature of writing itself and because of the nature of classrooms as educational settings. In this paper, Dyson and Freedman review the kinds of interrelated research knowledge about writing that may help focus teacher observations, deepen insights, and inform the crucial decisions teachers make about how best to support their students' efforts. (Note: For a more complete and technical version of this literature review, see Technical Report No. 1.) July, 1990; 44 pages.
