Question: What is the value of word processing in writing?
Answer: “Showed that students learned basic word processing skills quickly and that the use of word processing had motivational value.” RJ Kurth. 1986. P. 426.
Comment: I didn’t need this research to tell me the value of word processing in improving attitude toward writing. The positive attitude of my students demonstrated word processing’s value to students. Whether it improves the quality of writing is another question. RayS,
