Description 

This is for No. 5 of the series: Learning through Digital Technologies

Edited by Vincent Connelly, Anna L. Barnett, Julie E. Dockrell and Andrew Tolmie

This monograph presents recent international research on the teaching and learning of writing. The purpose of the monograph is to inform education professionals about this exciting new research which we hope will, in turn, contribute to improved practice and performance in the classroom.

The studies in this monograph fall into two broad and overlapping areas of interest. The first is concerned with charting performance and development in writing skills in typical and in special populations. Topics covered include writing as discovery; linguistic development in writing; the writing of children with language impairments; unexpectedly good and poor spellers; and brain activation and idea generation. The second area is concerned directly with assessment, assistance and instruction in writing. Topics covered here range from drawing lessons from research for evidence based writing practice in the classroom; self-regulated strategy development in writing; the development of a new handwriting speed test; and the use of information technology in the classroom for struggling writers.

No 9: Psychology and antisocial behaviour in schools
Edited by Pam Maras, Jim Demetre, Amy Moon and Andrew Tolmie
Whilst antisocial behaviour in schools is a topic of major international concern, there is a surprising dearth of work focused on psychological explanations for its occurrence, or on interventions founded on such explanations. This monograph is intended to address this deficit.

No 10: Self-regulation and dialogue in primary classrooms
Edited by David Whitebread, Neil Mercer, Christine Howe and Andrew Tolmie
This monograph aims to bring together two important current lines of research investigating the processes of teaching and learning in Primary classrooms: how adults help children develop new ways of thinking and learning, and the role of spoken dialogue between adults and children in learning and development.
