The Role of Topic and the Reading/Writing Connection.
Kennedy, Barbara L.
TESL-EJ, v1 n1 Apr 1994
This study was originally constructed to examine effect of content-area reading on English-as-a-Second-Language writing proficiency but was restructured and extended because composition topics proved to be confounding factors. Although results of the study raise several issues, most significant are the influence of topic on the acquisition of ESL composition skills and the influence of topic on the cognitive task of demonstrating ESL writing proficiency.
