The Process Pedagogy

the process pedagogy
The Process Pedagogy
  • The process pedagogy is a pedagogy that believes students should be treated like real writers, and so a course designed with process pedagogy is centered around the production of student texts, emphasizing in-class workshops, conferencing, peer review, invention and revision techniques, and reading that supports these goals.

The Process Pedagogy
  • The process pedagogy concerns itself not only with “what” a student writes but also “how” a student writes.
  • The process pedagogy gained prominence in the 1960s
the process pedagogy2
The Process Pedagogy
  • The process pedagogy argued for student choice of topics, authenticity of voice, writing as an “organic-process”, individual growth, and personal expression.
  • The process pedagogy essentially challenged the rules of institutionalized instruction and questioned the practices of academic writing
the process pedagogy3
The Process Pedagogy
  • Process teachers did not hate all written products; they only hated the kind of written products they claimed the traditional process inevitably produced (lifeless, dull, formulaic writing).

The Process Pedagogy
  • How to achieve “process writing”?
    • Believe that students have something original to say
    • Give them the freedom to choose their own material
    • Show them you are interested in what they have to say
    • Help them gain access to their “real” or “authentic” voice and perspective
the process pedagogy5
The Process Pedagogy
  • Process teachers don’t identify where writers have gone wrong; rather, they help writers see what they accomplished and where the essay might be in its next draft.

The Process Pedagogy
  • The process pedagogy worked on the assumption that all students could write if the curriculum were designed on a pedagogy that built on the skills, strengths, and interests students already possessed.

The Process Pedagogy
  • Critics against the process approach:
    • Argued that the pedagogy was not new or revolutionary but simply another “step” in the traditional pedagogy
    • Suggested that the idea lacked consistency and structure
    • Claimed that proponents of the process pedagogy were simply looking at “shock” value
    • Believed that the process pedagogy was irresponsible because it failed to teach basic and necessary skills and conventions


    • Process writing has never ignored standards or skills. These issues are addressed as they appear as opposed to a “scheduled” part of the lesson plan.
    • No one true model of pedagogy will work for every child. The process pedagogy allows for the inclusion and adaptation of multiple pedagogies

The Process Pedagogy
  • Proponents of the process pedagogy have developed proven writing strategies of :
    • Freewriting
    • Voice
    • Personal Narrative
    • Writing as a form of discovery
