Free Webinar: Why is Writing So Darn Hard
Wednesday, January 9, 2019 8-9pm EST
(Hosted by the Upper Midwest Branch of IDA)
Presented by: Bonnie Singer, Ph.D, CCC
To express themselves in writing, students must recruit many cognitive, linguistic, motoric and self-regulatory abilities as well as draw upon their knowledge of social, rhetorical, and text production conventions. Writing is effective and efficient to the degree that these requisite processes are juggled in a smooth and fluid manner. Some students do this with relative ease. Others struggle inordinately. In this session, we will explore the many processes at play in writing with an eye toward understanding why some students find written language production so difficult.
