Dr. Cornelia Paraskevas


As student writers gain more instruction and experience, their beliefs about writing and their own writing practices change. Based on prior research about writing development and the author's own experiences, a developmental scale was created that can be used to chart the typical course of a writer’s growth and understanding of writing. It is not strictly linear, and stages might be skipped, condensed, or combined. Like the writing process itself, the scale is recursive; ideally, the writer would get into a cycle of repeating the final two stages, building on former knowledge and always seeking new understandings that can be applied to both learning and teaching writing.
