Effective Teaching and Learning of Writing describes the current state of the art in research on the way in which children acquire skills in written text production and defines the features of instruction that can play a part in teaching such skills. The book discusses research by 'reflective practitioners', the use of computers in the solution of educational problems and formal research into effective approaches to the teaching of writing in primary and secondary education. In the concluding section feedback procedures and effective peer-group interaction between pupils and interaction between pupil and teacher are focused upon.
