Are Social-Cognitive Ability and Narrative Writing Skill Related?
Burleson, Brant R.; Rowan, Katherine E.
Written Communication, v2 n1 p25-43 Jan 1985
Reports findings of one study that reanalyzed research data allegedly demonstrating a substantial relationship between social cognitive ability and narrative writing skill, and another that collected original data. Reveals no relationship between social cognitive ability and rated quality of narrative essays. Discusses finding in terms of a theoretical model of relationship between cognitive abilities, discourse aims, and discourse models. (FL)
