Sutherland, Jennifer A.; Topping, Keith J.
Journal of Research in Reading, v22 n2 p154-79 Jun 1999
Investigates effects of a structured procedure for collaborative writing (in 2 formats) on the quality of creative writing and attitudes to writing in 8-year-old children. Finds that both formats of collaborative creative writing could be effective; however, ensuring short term gains for the more able helpers in cross-ability pairs could be problematic. (RS)
