An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Research on Collaborative Writing.
Wynn, Evelyn Shepherd
This annotated bibliography is intended to help teachers of composition improve writing quality of entering college students. The main body of the report is preceded by a brief summary of sources for faculty interested in examining the causes attributed to the decline in college students' writing skills, including: "National Assessment and the Teaching of English" (Mellon 1975); "The National Reform of Education" (Ornstein 1992); "Score Decline" (Cameron and Guralnick 1997); and, "SAT Scores and Writing Skills" (Gossage 1976). Sources for understanding theoretical and historical underpinnings of collaborative learning include "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: The Many Faces of Constructivism" (Phillips 1995); "Collaborative Writing Interactions in One Ninth-Grade Classroom" (Dale 1994); "Strategies of Collaborative Writing and Intellectual Enrichment" (Haber 1994); and "Learning Together and Alone" (Johnson 1991). The major portion of the bibliography, with almost 100 entries, includes sources that report research findings on collaborative writing in the college classroom and cover strategies, methods, and research related to the implementation of collaborative writing.
