MS in Literacy Education
Writing is a vital component of literacy acquisition. The writing process contains various steps that children must understand and execute in order to be successful writers. This study asked: how can writing strategies taught in a small group foster the development of literacy among struggling writers? Research was done in Port, New York (pseudonym) with two students identified as struggling writers. Through a writing attitude survey, informal interviews, and instruction of various writing strategies during opinion writing, there was evidence that factors can change writing attitudes: modeling supports understanding of strategies: and self-monitoring strategies can support writing. These findings call for teachers to understand how children’s writing develops in order to provide the best instruction for each individual student.
