Meeting Description:

Text Production Processes at School: Educational and Psycholinguistic Perspectives

This working group aims to review and integrate current knowledge on 'text production at school' from research on text linguistics, psycholinguistics and education. The focus will be on the basic cognitive processes involved in text production (planning, formulating, revising, reading). Methodological developments in the field such as keystroke logging, recording of handwriting movements and/or eye-tracking have important implications for the understanding of the cognitive processes involved in written text production and will have a strong impact on educational aspects of writing. Possible issues and topics for the working group are as follows.

(1) The analysis of individual processes and their interaction:
(1a) in experimental studies,
(1b) in educational settings, and
(1c) as a function of different didactic approaches.

(2) Theoretical reflections on the implications of these results.

(3) Methodological issues, including:
(3a) different monitoring and registration methods (from time-sensitive measurement to classroom observation), and
(3b) the linguistic analysis of texts, including computational linguistics and corpus based approaches.

The working group is designed to be relevant to linguists (from the areas of psycholinguistics, text linguistics, corpus linguistics) as well as instructional and educational scientists and psychologists. An important objective is to promote and improve interdisciplinary and international collaboration. The working group is part of the 2011 annual conference of the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Sprachwissenschaft (DGfS).
