Annotated Research: Writing Inhibitions

Question: What problems in writing do students of both sexes fear?

Answer: “Both sexes identified forming a thesis and writing a conclusion as inhibiting.” KL Bell. 1984. P. 203.

Comment: I’d expect students to be inhibited by constructing a thesis. I would not expect a problem with writing conclusions—especially if the teacher emphasizes: “Tell them what you are going to tell them. Tell them. And tell them what you told them.” RayS.
