Research on Struggling Young Writers
I must confess I only read the abstract of this research article, "Improving the Writing, Knowledge, and Motivation of Struggling Young Writers," featured on the American Educational Research Association site.
And the abstract, which includes a definition of "self-regulated strategy development," or SRSD, was a bit too jargon heavy for my non-researcher sensibilities.
But one sentence in the abstract might entice you to read the article. It says that SRSD "had a positive impact on the writing performance and knowledge of struggling second-grade writers attending urban schools serving a high percentage of low-income families."
