Theories, Models and Methodology in Writing Research describes the current state of the art in research on written text production. The chapters in the first part offer contributions to the creation of new theories and models for writing processes. The second part examines specific elements of the writing process, such as lower order processes, cognitive load, revision and planning. Part three also discusses the specific elements of the writing process but examines them from the point of view of developmental psychology. The final part contains chapters dealing with aspects of research methodology.

Die Ausbildung der Schreibkompetenz in der ersten Fremdsprache (Englisch) stellt eine Herausforderung für viele Lehrkräfte in der Sekundarstufe I dar und soll Schwerpunkt dieser Arbeit sein. Die theoretische Vorarbeit umfasst die Vorstellung von Modellen zur Erklärung von Schreibleistungen, die Analyse der Bildungsstandards für die erste Fremdsprache in Bezug auf diese Kompetenz sowie die Vorstellung von Ansätzen zur Schreibkompetenzvermittlung im Englischunterricht unter besonderer Berücksichtigung von prozessorientierten Ansätzen und Klassifikationen von Rückmeldungen und Revisionen. Im zweiten Teil werden die Ergebnisse von drei empirischen Studien vorgestellt. In der ersten Studie werden zwei Ansätze zur Zuordnung von Schreibleistungen zum Europäischen Referenzrahmen für Sprachen verglichen. Die zweite Studie, die im Rahmen der Normierungsstudie am Institut zur Qualitätsentwicklung (IQB) stattfand, untersucht mehr als 1.000 Englischlerner in der Sekundarstufe I und ihre Lehrkräfte. Der Fokus der Analysen liegt auf der Identifikation von Zusammenhängen zwischen Merkmalen des Unterrichts, Schreibleistungen und motivationalen Faktoren der Schülerinnen und Schüler. In der dritten Studie werden die Bewertungen zu Textproduktionen von Acht- und Neuntklässlern verglichen, welche einen Brief auf Deutsch und Englisch verfassten. Abschließend werden Erkenntnisse der theoretischen und empirischen Arbeit diskutiert und ein schulisches Modell zum (fremdsprachlichen) Schreiben vorgestellt.

This volume tells the story of research on the cognitive processes of writing—from the perspectives of the early pioneers, the contemporary contributors, and visions of the future for the field. Writing processes yield important insights into human cognition, and is increasingly becoming a mainstream topic of investigation in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience. Technological advances have made it possible to study cognitive writing processes as writing unfolds in real time. This book provides an introduction to these technologies. The first part of the volume provides the historical context for the significance of writing research for contemporary cognitive psychology and honors the pioneers in cognitive and social-cognitive research in this field. The book then explores the rapidly expanding work on the social foundations of cognitive processes in writing and considers not only gender differences but also gender similarities in writing. The third part presents a lifespan view of writing in early and middle childhood, adolescence, higher education, and the world of work. There follows an examination of the relationships of language processes –at the word, sentence, and text levels—to the cognitive processes in writing. Part V covers representative research on the cognitive processes of writing—translation and reviewing and revision—and the working memory mechanisms that support those processes. A review of the current technologies used to study these cognitive processes on-line as they happen in real time is provided. Part VII provides an introduction to the emerging new field of the cognitive neuroscience of writing made possible by the rapidly evolving brain imaging technologies, which are interpretable in reference to paradigms in cognitive psychology of writing. The final section of the book offers visions of the future of writing research from the perspective of contemporary leaders in writing research.

Writing in Real Time

This volume focuses on how writing is produced both during the moment-to-moment process of inscribing a text and during real time broadly conceived as the context for studying the writing process as writers plan, draft, revise, and confer with others. The chapters break open these generic categories by studying special populations of writers not studied before, by specifying the writing environment, by developing more detailed models of the writing process, and by offering critical analyses of current research methods and paradigms. In a renewed climate of educational need such as we are now experiencing, research on writing processes can contribute an important piece to the puzzle of effective instruction. Theories of instruction ought to be integrated with theories of learning and both must incorporate knowledge about writers' processes. The chapters in this volume move toward such a view of research on writing.

The second edition of A Practical Introduction to Writing Studies better integrates creative, business, and expository writing. It gives advanced and novice writers an opportunity to see writing in action and the opportunity to expand their view of writing using models of texts from selected genres and formats produced in the various subject areas in writing studies. This edition takes a very student-centered approach to teaching writing, providing a wider range of model texts that students can discuss, evaluate, or even imitate in order to produce their own texts.
