Writing education: A study on the relation between young people's writing competencies and metalinguistic knowledge in the context of first language education

Project Details

Description

The project aims to develop much needed new knowledge relevant for writing education. Through an exploration of the specific relations between young people's writing competencies and metalinguistic knowledge - the latter understood as their ways of thinking and talking about written texts - the project will provide vital insights and contribute to further theorisation within the field. In the project, we apply a contextual approach to student writing that takes into account both the writer and the teaching context. Furthermore, we propose that exploring young people's repertoire of affective and associative engagement with written texts as one dimension of their metalinguistic knowledge will contribute to a better understanding of the role and nature of such knowledge in the classroom.
