Summary

This paper advances a taxonomy of college writing styles based on a broad spectrum of writing research. The taxonomy focuses on the constructs of deep and surface writing and the role of selfhood in affecting writing strategies and outcomes. It compares constructs such as reflective versus reproductive, hierarchical versus linear, active versus passive, and autonomous versus rule-bound. The model is comprehensive because it explains both deep and surface orientations as reflective of the interrelationships of writing beliefs, writing strategies, and the written product. It also notes how teachers' beliefs about the nature and complexity of composition affect their own behavior which, in turn, influences student performance. The paper suggests that educators need to move toward recognizing and rewarding elaborative, self-invested writing. Recommendations for instruction include both effective support and strategies for promoting writing as an integrative instructional tool across content areas. (Contains 31 references.) (MDM)
