Teacher Attitudes toward Language: Effects of Training in a Process Approach to Writing.
Spanjer, R. Allan; Layne, B. H.
Journal of Educational Research, v77 n1 p60-62 Sep-Oct 1983
Researchers investigated whether inservice teachers' attitudes toward writing would be more similar with linguists' attitudes after participating in workshops stressing a process approach to writing. The workshops did influence teachers' attitudes, so that they relied less on rules and more on language usage to dtermine the appropriateness of a piece of writing. (Author/PP)
