Question: What happens when students draw as a pre-writing activity?
Answer: “When students drew before writing they wrote more than when they were told to begin writing immediately.” KA Leathers. 1987. P. 216.
Comment: Since this is an annotated finding, it does not describe the type of drawing or how it’s related to the forthcoming essay. Interesting to test whether any type of pre-writing brings the same result—brainstorming, for example. RayS.
