The authors report on their research into the integration of a writing strategy, based on the self-regulated strategy development (SRSD) model, into an existing resources support program for sixth-grade students. They used Graham and Harris's W-W-W, What=2 How=2 story writing mnemonic in their resource setting and evaluated students' progress at 3 weeks and again after 3 months. Their trial indicated that the strategy improved students' writing skills and was generalized to general classroom assignments. The strategy they used is designed to scaffold the planning process and support students in generating, organizing, and elaborating on ideas for narrative writing.
