Promoting Idea Production by Novice Writers Through the Use of Discourse-Related Prompts.
Bakunas, Boris
Applied Psycholinguistics, v17 n4 p385-400 Dec 1996
Investigates whether exposure to discourse elements affects idea production in novice writers. Results indicate that students given discourse prompts generated significantly more ideas than those given purely motivational prompts and that they spent more time generating ideas, suggesting that instruction in discourse elements may prove beneficial.
