"Research In Written Composition": Fifteen Years of Investigation.
VanDeWeghe, Richard
In 1963 the National Council of Teachers of English published a major summary of research in composition, sometimes referred to as the Braddock Report, which included 24 questions that addressed areas in which further research was needed. This paper describes more than 100 published and unpublished reports of research conducted since the Braddock Report that provide information related to these 24 areas. The research deals with such aspects of composition as writing attitudes and achievement, writing topics preferred by students, the effect of reading on writing, effective instructional techniques, the effect of the study of linguistics and rhetorical theory on writing, the composition process, and specific skills involved in writing.
