Learning to Make a Mess while Writing: The Paradox of Teaching Basic Writers the Composing Process.
Williamson, Michael M.; Wesley, K. Davis
Research & Teaching in Developmental Education, v3 n2 p42-51 Spr 1987
Examines the composing processes of basic writers, examining their tendencies toward writer's block, low-level goals, and writer-based prose. Suggests that basic writers be taught that the purpose of writing is to communicate with other people and that errors, revisions, and general messiness are part of the complicated process. (PAA)
