Annotated Research: Effects of Writing Process on Writing Product

Question: How does instruction in the writing process affect the writing product?

Answer: “Suggests that progress in writing for high school students is linked to the ability to develop and elaborate ideas during the process of writing, generate academically acceptable English automatically, and re-write, edit, and revise.” S Banks. 1985. Pp. 202-203.

Comment: Students might not develop and elaborate ideas unless the teacher focuses on that process, which I had never thought of as a part of the writing process or generating academically acceptable English automatically, either. Interesting. RayS.
