Peter Elbow (1973)
that she doesn‘t learn how to write by someone telling her how to do it, but by trying it out herself.
„It‘s possible to make better writers AND better writing, but not if the writing is made better by another hand.“(1998, 27).
„It is important that the writer does the work and learns something that can be used in future writing“.(Wingate 2000, 9)
Writing advisors(writing of text)
advise students on writing (problems)
support outside the classroom
Teachers (content of text)
supervise content & mark written work
support/expectation in the classroom
Keep advising and teaching separate
students keep a leaner’s diary or portfolio on their writing, or
arrange additional meeting
(model based on Bräuer 2009)
methods, such as
= are useful for student writers, who like to follow a structure.
methods for finding ideas, such as
BRAINSTORMING & FREEWRITING
= are useful for student writers, who like to start immediately and create the structure of their writing in the writing process.
How could students benefit from teacherless writing classes at the writing centre?
