Effects of Graphic Organizers on Student Achievement in the Writing Process
Brown, Marjorie
Online Submission
Writing at the high school level requires higher cognitive and literacy skills. Educators must decide the strategies best suited for the varying skills of each process. Compounding this issue is the need to instruct students with learning disabilities. Writing for students with learning disabilities is a struggle at minimum; teachers have to find a way to instruct students on how to write so they can meet the necessary demands of post-secondary education and the workforce. Working and learning in the 21st century also brings in the aspect of using technology to instruct students. The focus of this research will be to determine the effectiveness of using technology and graphic organizers to teach the pre-writing process. The pre-writing process is the most important stage of writing; a stage students with learning disabilities struggle with the most, and routinely spend the least amount of time on. The following are appended: (1) Kansas Department of Education 6 TRAITS of Writing; (2) Student Self-Assessment and Attitude toward Writing Survey; (3) Graphic Organizer; and (4) Persuasive Analysis Organizer. (Contains 2 tables and 4 graphs.)
