Question: How do writing-process activities help students learn to write?
Answer: “Survey of textbook authors and National Writing Project Administrators found a preference for using process-related activities, such as free writing, for allowing students to select their own topics and for having students write to a variety of audiences in a variety of discourse modes.” D Boiarsky. 1984. P. 184.
