Using Problem-Solving and Process-Analysis to Help Students Resolve Their Own Writing Problems.
Coe, Richard M.
A set of writing assignments and class activities designed to help students analyze their own writing processes, define their own strengths and weaknesses as writers, set their own goals, devise plans for achieving those goals, and evaluate their own progress is presented in this paper. The assignments are explained in detail, and suggestions for resource material and teaching techniques to implement each assignment are provided. In a discussion of excerpts from student writing samples, several problem-solving methods are suggested to help students figure out the relationship between their writing processes and the strengths and weaknesses of their written products.
