Children's Evaluations of Children's Texts: The Relationship between Types of Writing and Writing Strategies.
Sadoshima, Saori
A study investigated the extent to which children consider writing strategies in relation to types of writing. Data were evolved by interviewing 48 fifth-grade children on their processes of evaluating other children's papers. Each child was asked to read paired texts, judge their comparative quality, and explain the basis of their judgments. They were also asked to define the genre in which the texts were written. The texts included stories, essays, and persuasive writings. Data analysis confirmed that children do recognize writing strategies according to their definitions of each type of writing. Findings reinforce the importance of linking writing strategies with types of writing in teaching writing. (Contains 28 references; appendixes contain the texts, a list of points mentioned by children for each text, and children's definitions of genre.) (Author/RS)
