The Process and Product of Writing: Implications for Elementary School Teachers.
Suleiman, Mahmoud F.
This paper provides a summary of well established, conventional thinking on the importance of writing to the language learning process. Writing is a central element of language. Any reading and language arts program must consider the multidimensional nature of writing in instructional practices, assessment procedures, and language development. The understanding of writing fundamentals can be understood through examining the multidimensional nature of the writing process. This paper explores these issues and draws pedagogical implications for reading and language arts teachers while capitalizing on the benefits of writing as an indispensable skill in language arts programs.
