A Range of Informative Writing. Discussion Booklet 3: A Report on the 1982 C. E. E. English Cross-Moderation Exercise.
Dixon, John; Stratta, Leslie
A consideration of real world language use yields five questions that could prove helpful in assessing student writing achievements: (1) What is the writer's purpose or intention? (2) What audience does the writer have in mind? (3) What are the organizing principles of the piece? (4) What range of experience and knowledge might one reasonably expect the writer to draw on? and (5) What specific uses of language are necessary, given the answers to the first four questions? A detailed analysis of several pieces of student writing in terms of these criteria suggests specific questions covering these areas that students should ask themselves in order to become better writers.
