The Notion of Giftedness and Student Expectations about Writing.
Palmquist, Michael; Young, Richard
Written Communication, v9 n1 p137-68 Jan 1992
Investigates the effect on postsecondary students of the belief that writing ability is a gift. Finds that higher levels of belief in giftedness correlate with higher levels of writing apprehension, lower self-assessments of writing ability, and lower levels of confidence. Suggests that the belief in giftedness may have deleterious effects on student writers. (PRA)
