Implications of Research Studies in the Teaching of Writing (1966-1971).
Tway, Eileen
This paper, which searched studies of the teaching behavior of elementary school writing teachers, found few studies with documented evidence of actual teaching behaviors. Most studies were concerned more with examining teaching approaches than with examining actual teaching behavior involved in the approaches. The writer argues that the "approach" studies are relatively easier to conduct than studies assessing teaching behavior. There is a need for criteria for analyzing what the teacher does when he teaches writing. Better measuring instruments are also needed so that researchers will know when a specific teaching behavior has been successful. The writer also argues that research in teaching behavior of composition teachers ought to be better coordinated so that this research will have wider scope and broader implications for the elementary school program.
