ABSTRACT
This article presents an overview of Process Writing and delineates its many components as well as how it is used in the writing classroom. Process writing is a cognitive process model of writing instruction whereby students follow a developmental process of stages in preparing any written work. This pedagogy is a useful teaching methodology for those students who need support in their writing skills. Unlike traditional models of writing, process writing de-emphasizes error correction. Students writers who incorporate process writing in their literacy development follow the universal stages of successful writers in developing a topic through pre-writing and planning, drafting a paper, conferencing with their peers and the teacher, revising the paper, editing for surface-level errors, and publishing the work. Key elements of process writing include asking student to write often, receive frequent feedback, and write multiple revisions. Recent research has supported the use of process writing for special education students, as a way to enhance literacy skills and self-esteem of writers who possess learning disabilities.
