Codling, Rose Marie; Gambrell, Linda B.
The Motivation to Write Profile (MWP) is an instrument which was designed to help teachers gain insights into students' writing motivation. This paper describes the development, administration, and scoring of the MWP and suggests practical ways to use resulting information to create a classroom environment which supports young writers as they learn about writing concepts, strategies, and purposes. Contains 45 references. Appendixes present the three parts of the MWP, teacher directions, directions for scoring, scoring sheet, and directions for conducting the conversational interview.
