Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Recent research on children's writing suggests that there are positive benefits from peers learning from each other as well as from teachers. This paper presents ways that teachers can provide a supportive environment in which peer groups can facilitate the writing process. Through interacting in large or small peer groups, children can assist each other in progressing through the recursive components of the writing process and in generating knowledge about the composition process.
