Guiding Principles of Effective Writing Instruction

In the fall of 2013, Write for Texas convened a group of researchers and national writing experts to author the "Guiding Principles of Effective Writing Instruction."  The guiding principles were refined by project partners from the Texas Education Agency and the regional Education Service Centers during the winter of 2014.  The resulting document serves as a guidepost for Write for Texas professional development and instructional coaching. Joining researchers from the Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk at The University of Texas at Austin, were the following recognized experts from the field of writing instruction: 

Steve Graham, Ph.D. (Arizona State University)

Tanya E. Santangelo, Ph.D. (Arcadia University)

Jeanne Wanzek, Ph.D. (Florida State University)

Christie L. Cavanaugh, Ph.D. (Educational Consultant)
