National Center for the Study of Writing and Literacy Occasional Paper    

OP 31. Writing Matters

By Sarah Warshauer Freedman, Fred Hechinger

Summary: This paper, written in non-technical language for a general audience, outlines and synthesizes the Center's research findings and the implications of these findings for teachers, parents, students, and policy-makers. Freedman and Hechinger begin by discussing new findings related to the early years of schooling, moving from there to a focus on the later years, considering important issues such as the controversies surrounding writing assessment, the professionalization of teaching, and the challenges of educating students who do not speak English as their first language. June, 1992; 10 pages.
