While research on self-regulated learning and teaching is on the rise, writing is a task with which many high school students continue to struggle. It is encouraging that some teachers are cognizant of the importance of considering self-regulation and motivation levels of students as they design innovative and effective writing lesson plans. In this chapter, two exemplary writing lesson plans are presented, followed by teacher reflections, and an analysis of how each lesson plan addresses the construct of self-regulation.

Writing is an essential skill for optimal success in school and in the workforce. While academic ability and skill are critical for successful writing outcomes, alone such factors are insufficient for optimal outcomes. How students view themselves and their abilities is critical to academic success and to persisting in the face of frustration and failure. Students with low levels of writing self-efficacy, high levels of writing apprehension, and who fail to use self-regulatory strategies are les...

This commentary discusses what disciplinary literacy is and why it is important. It then discusses the ways in which elementary school teachers can infuse aspects of disciplinary literacy into elementary instruction. It argues that the Common Core Standards, even those at the K-6 level, are providing avenues for preparation for disciplinary literacy.

Educators and researchers are increasingly calling for the processes of writing and knowledge construction to be an integral part of disciplinary learning. This article contributes to the literature by presenting an empirical analysis of a programme that was designed to expose students to the complexities of academic practices in conjunction with disciplinary concepts. The impact of the programme was evaluated through analysis of student grades before and after its implementation and student and...

Writing performance of a complex recommendation report produced by student teams for an actual client during a 15-week semester was compared in a writing-intensive Agronomy 356 course and in paired Agronomy 356/ English 309 courses. The longitudinal study investigated differences that existed between reports produced for each learning environment in terms of argument effectiveness, document usability, and professionalism. Three agronomy and three professional communication raters ranked the 12 l...

Le concept didactique connu sous le nom de « Ecrire pour apprendre » apparait porteur d’intuitions scientifiques fortes pour la plupart des didacticiens de l’ecrit. Pourtant, la recherche ne fait que commencer a s’interesser a un phenomene qui s’annonce complexe et ramifie, relie aux multiples pratiques sociales distinctes qui ont emerge depuis l’invention de l’ecriture. Les travaux de Vygotski sur le developpement sociocognitif, lorsque nous les appliquons a la comprehension des genres d’ecrits...

In this commentary on the special issue, I join the authors in searching for a conceptual framework that would clarify the concepts of metacognition, self-regulation, and self-regulated learning. Building on the insights of the different articles, I suggest that metacognition, self-regulation, and self-regulated learning should be considered as subtypes of the general, abstract, phenomenon of self-regulated action. I continue by questioning the benefit of seeking boundaries between these three c...

The topic of how students become self-regulated as learners has attracted researchers for decades. Initial attempts to measure self-regulated learning (SRL) using questionnaires and interviews were successful in demonstrating significant predictions of students’ academic outcomes. The present article describes the second wave of research, which has involved the development of online measures of self-regulatory processes and motivational feelings or beliefs regarding learning in authentic context...
