Elementary students with writing problems (n=24) were given summer instruction in handwriting automaticity, spelling strategies, and composing. Participants improved at a faster rate than controls on some measures, and some differences were maintained at six-month follow-up. Discussion of results stresses the importance of affect and motivation as well as cognitive variables. (Author/PB)
