Components of the Composing Process.
Crowley, Sharon
Information derived from an informal study of the processes through which students go as they complete papers assigned for class shows that most freshman students spend little time preparing for their writing and use a simple drafting technique in composition. This paper offers a model of the student composing process which is generalized from the composition diaries of 84 freshmen and 17 upperclass English majors, compares this process to an ideal model, suggests why student writing often falls short of teachers' expectations, and discusses classroom procedures which may help students more closely approach the ideal model. Diagrams of the student model and of an ideal model of the composing process are included. (JM)
