Annotated Bibliography of Research on Writing in a Non-Native Language. Technical Report No. 51.
Schecter, Sandra R.; Harklau, Linda A.
This annotated bibliography includes about 170 citations of dissertations, articles, papers, and other studies concerning the development of writing skills in non-native English-speakers. The works cited are based on the collection and analysis of data, and do not include articles describing or prescribing pedagogical approaches or curricula. Similarly, pieces written primarily for the purpose of constructing evaluative measures are not included. Entries are presented in five sections that focus on the following: (1) text features (error analysis of syntax and mechanics, discourse features); (2) non-native writing proficiency development (bilingual emergent literacy, later elementary and secondary development, literate adults); (3) the writing process (relationship to attitude, revision, and effect of task and other contextual variables); (4) non-native writing and other language skills (reading/writing relationship, speaking/writing relationship, relationship to native language writing ability); and (5) instructional factors (curriculum and program design, teacher response to student writing). An author index is included. (MSE)
