A Look at Response and the Teaching of Writing.
Intended for teachers, this paper considers response to student writing, looking at the different angles from which it is commonly perceived and acknowledging the complications that evaluation and the demands of curriculum add to that response. Three major areas are examined. There is an historical look at response, so that some of the roots of traditional approaches and assumptions can be seen. The highlights of the past decade are cited, including the angles from which traditional approaches have been attacked and through which current research is evolving. Finally, current ideas from research and teaching are discussed in order to assess what the state of the art is now and what needs to be considered for teaching and learning writing in the future.
