About this item

Educators, psychologists, and other researchers from North America, Europe, and Australia provide this 28-chapter handbook detailing research on major writing theories, developmental issues, instructional approaches, and research methods. They discuss theories and models of writing from sociocultural and other perspectives; developmental issues, including the development of written language, the relationship between reading and writing development, and the development of motivation, self-efficacy, and self-regulation; instruction aspects, including evidence-based practice and instruction, writing to learn, sociocultural approaches, and grammar instruction; writing development in special populations (students with learning disabilities, English language learners, and culturally and linguistically diverse classrooms); and analytic tools for writing research: automated essay evaluation, keystroke logging, and linguistic analysis tools. This edition is more comprehensive and has a more international scope. It has topics from social, cognitive, linguistic, new literacy, technological, and neuroscience perspectives and new chapters on new literacies, out-of-school writing, translation, self-regulation, genre instruction, evaluation and revision, argumentative writing, computer-based instruction, and professional development.
