Student Reactions to Teacher Response in Multiple-Draft Composition Classrooms.
Ferris, Dana R.
TESOL Quarterly, v29 n1 p33-53 Spr 1995
English-as-a-Second-Language university students in a multiple-draft composition setting were found to pay more attention to teachers' comments on preliminary drafts than on final drafts; pay most attention to comments on grammar; and consider teachers' comments helpful overall. Problems with teacher comments and implications of the study are discussed. (Contains 20 references.) (LR)
