Using a Focus on Revision to Improve Students' Writing Skills
O'Neill, Kathryn S.; Gravois, Renée
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v19 Oct 2017
The ability to write clearly and correctly is essential for students both in college and as they enter the workforce. One challenge we find in coaching student writing is that students shy away from engaging fully with writing as a process, especially with revising their drafts. It is important across Business courses, not just in Business Communication courses, to help students strengthen their writing, and in particular, to motivate students to devote more time and effort to revision. This paper presents two approaches from two disciplines--Business Communication and Marketing, each designed to help improve students' motivation and skill in revising.
