It offers a detailed account of how research into primary students’ writing strategies was investigated in the Singapore context. A unique feature of the book is its two-phase design. In Phase One, primary school students’ writing strategies were found to be positively correlated with their English proficiency. In Phase Two, useful writing strategies were systematically taught to primary school students through strategy-based writing instruction.
