Writing Conference Talk: Factors Associated with High- and Low-Rated Writing Conferences.
Walker, Carolyn P.; Elias, David
Research in the Teaching of English, v21 n3 p266-85 Oct 1987
Analyzes and compares transcriptions of ten one-to-one conferences between teacher and student. Concludes that successful conferences focus on criteria for successful writing, evaluating students' work, and on the work itself; unsuccessful conferences are characterized by repeated requests for explanation, and by tutor dominance that excludes student participation in the evaluation process. Provides transcript excerpts. (JG)
