Building strong writers: Creating a balance between the authorial and secretarial elements of writing

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Writing supports and extends learning across all disciplines, as well as promotes social, emotional

    and cognitive development. One of the challenges for teachers involves the interpretation of students’

    ‘learning to write’ journeys in a way that provides them with the information they need for

    informed, focused and explicit instruction in writing, as well as for providing feedback to students

    and parents. This paper considers the importance of process and content when analysing student

    writing and creating a balance between the authorial and secretarial elements of writing.
