Robert Slavin just published a short review of research on writing instruction that I think teachers might find useful. Check out his post at What Works in Teaching Writing?
It got me thinking that it might be useful to readers – and to me – to highlight what I think are a few other very good and accessible summaries of the research on this topic.
Here are some resources I’ve previously shared – please let me know what I’m missing (I’m adding this post to The Best Posts On Writing Instruction):
Progressive mastery through deliberate practice: A promising approach for improving writing includes a good summary of the research.
Scientific evidence on how to teach writing is slim is from The Hechinger Report.
