What Do Children Think about Writing?
Wray, David
Educational Review, v45 n1 p67-77 1993
A British study asked 475 children aged 7-11 to write a piece explaining what good writing is. Children appeared extremely concerned with technical skills more than composition. Developmental stage differences may explain that their concerns reflect what bothered them most at the time and they did not mention what was less bothersome or what they felt able to do. (SK)
