Archive Research: Improving Writing

Question: What do students see as some factors in helping them improve their writing?

Answer: “Found that students viewed word processing, meaningful topics, adequate time, a quiet setting, and dialogic feedback as key factors in their improvement as writers.” DH Curtis, 1984, p. 183.

Comment: It might be interesting to discuss these thoughts by students with your student writers. What exactly do they mean by “dialogic feedback”? RayS.

Title: “Annotated Bibliography of Research in the Teaching of English.” JD Marshall and RK Durst. Research in the Teaching of English (May 1985), pp. 183-204.
