Writing Changes in the Nation's K-12 Education System. Research Notes RN-34
Noeth, Richard J.; Kobrin, Jennifer L.
College Board
The purpose of this study was to learn whether there have been any changes in writing instruction across K-12 education in the past three years. A three-year time frame was chosen to structure the study as it included the time period subsequent to the College Board's first announcement of the SAT writing section (the 2002-03 academic year). The English/language arts teachers and district administrators surveyed reported major changes in writing priorities, attitudes, and expectations; how writing is taught; learning related to writing; writing resources; and the importance placed upon writing in the curriculum in their schools and districts.
