Written Products and the Writing Process.
Odell, Lee; Sage, Selwyn
Study in writing processes, as presented in this paper, is based on the assumption that in order to write effectively, writers must be able not only to present ideas and feelings, but also to engage in the cognitive processes that will help them discover what they wish to say about a given idea, attitude, or set of data. These basic cognitive processes are as follows: focus, contrast, classification, reference to sequence, reference to physical context, and reference to change. Two studies, undertaken by Sage and by Cooper, Odell, and Courts, are explored in this paper-Sage's in detail. Although the research is not complete in either of these studies, it thus far tends to the conclusion that both teachers and researchers need to be concerned with identifying and helping students make effective use of these cognitive processes.
