Rybczynski, Marcia
Journal of Research and Development in Education, v26 n1 p15-23 Fall 1992
Letters from 18 average sixth-grade writers were analyzed for context-creating (background) and persuasive (strategic) text elements. Analysis revealed that sixth graders use context-creating elements to provide helpful background information for their audiences, rely on logical reasoning for persuasion, and have some understanding of text elements necessary for written persuasion.
