Overview

How Children Learn to Write tells us about the way in which children acquire a vital skill, which will be used constantly throughout their working and personal lives. It describes the processes by which children learn to write, and how they are taught in schools, More importantly, it explains why writing is taught the way it is. Drawing on sources in cognitive and developmental psychology, and on both international and New Zealand experience and research in education, the authors explain in non-specialist language the challenge writing offers to children, and how, with the right assistance and support, they meet that challenge.

This understanding of what lies behind the classroom practice will be essential for al in teacher education programs, and will enrich the work of those already teaching. Beyond the classroom, How Children Learn to Write offers a wealth of insight to parents and professionals, and a research-based contribution to public debate on education in basic skills.
