Increasing Story Quality through Planning and Revising: Effects on Young Writers with Learning Disabilities
Saddler, Bruce; Asaro, Kristie
Learning Disability Quarterly, v30 n4 p223-234 Fall 2007
In this study, supplemental writing instruction in planning and revising was used to improve the stories written by young writers with learning disabilities (LD) and poor writing skills. Six second-grade students practiced a strategy for planning and writing stories using the Self-Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD) approach and then revised their stories after instructor modeling of revising. After learning the strategy and practicing revisions, the students wrote post-instruction stories that were longer, more complete in terms of story grammar elements, and qualitatively better. The students also increased the amount of time they spent planning their stories at post-instruction as well as the number of revisions attempted. (Contains 1 table and 5 figures.)
