Improve writing by training foundational skills
To improve writing skill, you need a solid foundation of cognitive skills such as working memory, attention, sequencing and processing speed.
It takes a lot of brain power to coordinate and order all the processes involved in writing!
Research shows that students who struggle with writing lack these cognitive skills.
Cognitive skills involved in writing
We need to hold our plans in mind and simultaneously form each new sentence
Attention must be given both to writing and also thinking what to write next
Processing speed & sequencing
It takes a lot of brain power to coordinate and order all the different processes involved in writing
We need to be able to express our thoughts verbally before we will be able to put them down on paper
How to improve writing without picking up a pen
Dr Beth Rogowsky used the Fast ForWord programs with students in two research studies and found significant improvement in writing skills.
Although writing was not explicitly trained, the training designed to improve foundational cognitive and literacy skills generalized to improve writing skills.
