Title: The Problem-solving processes of writers and readers
Author(s): Rosbery, Ann S.; Warren, Beth; Bruce, Bertram C.; Flower, Linda; Bowen, Betsy; Kants, Margaret; Penrose, Ann M.
Subject(s): social perspective cognitive perspective writing reading problem-solving communicative
Abstract: This report discusses a cognitive/social perspective on writing and reading. Research demonstrating the communicative and problem-solving nature of writing and reading is examined, with special attention given to the influences that audience and purpose have on the construction of meaning. This theoretical position is illustrated with a series of "scenarios" that portray students of varying ages and levels of sophistication as they tackle writing and reading assignments in school. Woven throughout the scenarios are practical suggestions for supporting students' writing and reading expertise across a range of contexts.
