Facilitating Students' Collaborative Writing. ASHE-ERIC Higher Education Report. Jossey-Bass Higher and Adult Education Series.
Speck, Bruce W.
This monograph summarizes the research and provides practical advice on how to structure collaborative writing for students in the higher education classroom. The monograph begins with compelling pedagogical support for collaborative writing projects based on the research that has emerged in cognitive and learning theory over the last 30 years. Helpful advice is provided related to the range of collaborative writing opportunities that can be offered, ways to form groups, and approaches to integrate technology. A final topic is grading, which is particularly difficult for collaborative writing projects. The monograph provides the support a faculty member familiar with collaborative learning theory needs to alter his or her classroom habits. (Contains 306 references.) (SLD)
