Project

Investigating the impact of conversational and cognitive strategic support for promoting secondary school students' argumentative writing

Goal: More than ever, effective writing and proficient argumentation are imperative for full participation in our 21st century society. This project combines both, as prior (inter)national findings call attention to the fact that secondary school students’ writing, and argumentative writing in particular, is inadequately developed. Therefore, the main aim is to gain insight in how to support all secondary students adequately in acquiring argumentative writing. Considering prior research on the value of conversational and cognitive strategic support, the project builds on and combines both theoretical strands.
