Abstract:

This book draws together current research on revision from two areas. Thefirst is the large body of empirical work on the cognitive processesinvolved in the revision of written language production. This researchlooks at how operations of revision intervene during various phases ofwriting, at the resources or constraints (e.g., working memory load,content knowledge, strategy use) that affect revision and at developmentalaspects of revision capabilities.

The second area of research concerns the study of students learning torevise texts in instructional settings. This research examines the effectsof instructional design conditions (structure and sequencing of tasks,strategy instruction, word processing) and the impact of peer interactionson student acquisition of revision skills.
