ABSTRACT Intervention in writing composition strategies. We present an intervention in writing revision proccesses in a 1st High School classroom, ordinary and computational lessons, composed by 16 students, compared with another two groups (control) whom only received ordinary curriculum. The intervention consisted in the implementation of a process and text planing program focused on revision processes, during a school year, a weekly session into school language timetable. We reached a significative improvement of the experimental group in productivity and coherence in essay task, but not in description nor narration (which require less mental effort), and in reflective disposition. These data suggest that automatization of mechanical aspects of revision and improvement of control of substantive ones, possibly because of computer and pen and pencil uses, and because of the over-exact application of revision estrategies, indicated by essays improvement and writing reflectivity. The need of more specifically additional studies in revision tasks desing and intervention considering its splinter and concrete aspects is suggested Se presenta una intervención en procesos de revisión del mensaje escrito en un aula de 1º de ESO, ordinaria y de informática (con ordenador), compuesta por 16 alumnos comparada con otros dos grupos (control) que sólo recibieron currículum ordinario. La intervención consistió en la aplicación de un programa de planificación del proceso y del texto focalizado en los procesos de revisión, durante un curso escolar, una sesión a la semana en horario escolar de Lengua. Se obtiene una mejoría significativa del grupo experimental en productividad y coherencia en la redacción, pero no en la descripción ni en la narración (que requieren menor esfuerzo mental), y en la disposición reflexiva. Los datos sugieren la automatización de la revisión de aspectos mecánicos y aumento del control de los sustantivos, debido posiblemente al uso del ordenador y de lápiz y papel, y por la aplicación minuciosa de las estrategias de revisión indicado por la mejora de la redacción y de la reflexividad hacia la escritura. Se sugiere la necesidad de estudios adicionales más específicos en el diseño de tareas de revisión y de intervención considerando aspectos separados y concretos de la misma.

    ABSTRACT: Revision is a critically important component of the writing process, yet much research indicates that young children are often reluctant to revise unless provided with strong adult encouragement and support. Children's limited comprehension monitoring ability may contribute to their difficulty with revision. Children in the early elementary school years have been found to systematically overestimate the clarity of text, and therefore they often fail to identify potential comprehension problems that might be experienced by a naive reader. Conversely, accurate assessment of text comprehensibility has been shown to lead to successful revisions by both older and younger children. Recent studies indicate that training in comprehension monitoring strategies in turn yields benefits for children's revision.

    ABSTRACT: To date, seven intervention studies have been completed evaluating the efficacy of the Strategic Content Learning (SCL) approach as a model for promoting self-regulated learning by postsecondary students with learning disabilities. Summaries of outcomes from those studies suggest that SCL participation can be associated with gains for students in task performance, metacognitive knowledge, motivational beliefs, and strategic processing across a range of academic tasks (i.e., reading, writing, math). Previous SCL research reports have focused on general outcomes across participants and across tasks, rather than describing the details of individual cases. This article redresses that omission by describing the process of SCL intervention and associated outcomes for three SCL participants working on a common task, namely, writing. By reporting three in-depth parallel case studies, this article clarifies how SCL instruction is implemented to promote strategic writing, illustrates how SCL instructional principles can be personalized in response to individuals' needs, and traces the relationship between SCL instructional activities and outcomes. The article closes with a discussion of implications for theory, research, and practice.

    ABSTRACT: Two studies are reported here that investigated elementary school children’s text revision. In the first experiment, both semantic and surface flaws were inserted in texts that varied in reading difficulty. Second-grade through fifth-grade students revised these experimenter-generated passages, presented as examples of submissions to a class newspaper. Differences in text reading difficulty did not affect revision effectiveness, nor were the semantic flaws especially difficult to detect and revise. An age effect showed growth in the revision of both semantic and surface errors from grades 2 to 4 with 2nd-graders revising one-third of the inserted errors, and 4th- and 5th-graders revising three-quarters of them. Revision and cloze reading comprehension skills were correlated. A second study compared students’ revision of their own as well as another’s text flaws. Fifth-graders wrote a narrative for a classroom anthology, and they revised both their own and inserted flaws. Their writing was evaluated holistically. Rates of both semantic and surface revision were somewhat lower for their own as opposed to another’s text errors, but revision rates were nevertheless relatively high, and they correlated with writing quality; that is, children who wrote high-quality texts also revised more errors, especially experimenter-inserted flaws. These data confirm that children respond positively to writing challenges in the area of revision, a skill in process of development, which is amenable to inspection and appears ripe for facilitation.
