The Use of Models to Improve Organizational Techniques in Writing.
Andreach, James R.
The hypothesis of this study was that a method of writing instruction that employs expository organizational models to be imitated by students is more effective in improving expository writing organization than conventional classroom instruction in writing. One pre-test and one post-test writing sample were taken from two groups of English 10A students at a Long Island, New York, high school, with one group constituting the experimental population, the other the control. The hypothesis was confirmed. The improvement of the experimental group was attributed to the fact that both the experimental treatment and the rating scale concentrated on the single expository component of organization.
