Annotated Research: Reading and Writing from Sources

Question: What are the effects of reading from sources for the purpose of writing?

Answer: “Identified college students’ purposeful behavior when writing from sources, and showed that better readers engaged in more planning than less able readers.” ML Kennedy. 1985. P. 204.

Comment: How did the researcher determine the better from the less able reader? I would assume that better readers read more carefully than less able readers and would therefore need to spend more time in preparing for writing. The writing would be more complex and carefully worded. I would assume. Hmmmm! RayS.
